SOAS scholar's corporate governance reform publication launches at Westminster

2 July 2014

Ciaran Driver, Professor in the Department of Financial and Management Studies at SOAS, University of London has co-edited a Trade Union Congress (TUC) publication examining corporate governance reform post financial crash.

Co-edited with Janet Williamson of the TUC and Peter Kenway of the New Policy Institute, ‘Beyond Shareholder Value – the reasons and choices for corporate governance reform’ will be launched at Parliament Buildings, Westminster on 8 July at 4.45pm.

Since the downturn in the economy, there has been increased recognition from across the political spectrum that corporate governance reform is necessary to achieve a stronger, fairer and more sustainable economic model.

Iain Wright MP, Shadow Minister for Competitiveness and Enterprise, and Jesse Norman MP, member of the Treasury Select Committee, will speak at the launch, which will be chaired by TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady. Authors of the essays in the collection will also contribute and there will be questions and discussion.

The essay authors represent a wide range of organisations and perspectives. The articles demonstrate that there is a broad consensus on the need for reform of corporate governance that goes beyond the current system of shareholder value. The contributors set out a range of proposals for what such reform should look like.
