Emerging Markets Corporate Governance Research Network (EMCGN)

To promote the corporate governance policy agenda in emerging markets and transition economies, IFC has supported and endorsed a network of leading academics under the auspices of its EMCGN.

The aim of the network is to raise the academic quality of research on CG in emerging markets, to foster international exchange among scholars in all regions and to enhance the dialogue of researchers with policy makers and the private sector. Activities of the network include conferences, workshops, interviews with leading academics, and sharing of papers and data.

Currently, the Network is chaired by Prof. Stijn Claessens of University of Amsterdam and coordinated by Melsa Ararat, Director of Corporate Governance of Turkey and professor at Sabanci University, with the support of Burcin Yurtoglu, professor at the Otto Beisheim School of Management.

Previous conferences organised by EMCGN are hosted by Sabanci University Corporate Governance Forum in 2007, Coppead Graduate Business School and the FGV Law School in 2009, the Corporate Governance Institute at Korea University in 2011, the Indian School of Business in 2013, and the Leipzig Graduate School of Management in 2015.
