Expert knowledge of Corporate Governance and reporting

The Institute for Governance and Organizational Responsibility (i GOR) unifies academics from the University of Groningen who are interested in issues with regard to developments in corporate governance.

We are driven by the urge to know how effective existing governance practices are, which new (inter)national developments can be observed and what the answers to future issues might be. We focus on three themes: Corporate Governance, Corporate Responsibility & Corporate Reporting. Our ambition is to set in motion a healthy synergy between science and practice.
