4th International Regulation and Governance Conference: Queens College, University of Cambridge, UK



You are invited to submit your abstract for a paper to be presented at the 4th Cambridge International Regulation and Governance Conference to be held atQueens College, University of Cambridge, Thursday 6 September 2012, plus optional pre-conference dinner session on the evening of Wednesday 5 September 2012. Booking is also open for non-presenting delegates.


In our forthcoming conference we address regulatory responses to aspects of the global financial crisis. Reviews of UK and European corporate governance (Walker, Kay, Vickers, EC etc.) suggest poor governance is partly to blame. Some reforms have been instigated already but to what effect? Are we resorting to quick fixes? How should the interests of consumers, private and public bodies, government and regulators be balanced in the short, medium, long, and indeed very long term? Are good stewardship and innovation on balance promoted by more regulation or hindered by it, nationally and internationally?


Guest speaker: Sir Adrian Cadbury is a preeminent figure in corporate governance. He chaired the UK Committee on Financial Aspects of Corporate Governance (1992) which led to the ‘Cadbury Code,’ the forerunner of the current UK code.

Key speakers include: Peter Montagnon (Senior Investment Adviser, Financial Reporting Council) Graham Russell (Chief Executive, BRDO, UK Govt. Dept. of Business Innovation & Skills) Marie Laure Djelic (Prof. of Management, ESSEC Business School, France) Brian Cheffins (Professor of Corporate Law, University of Cambridge, UK) David Seidl (Professor of Organisation & Management, University of Zurich, Switzerland). Alan Hughes (MD, Whitechapel Bell Foundry Ltd., est. 1570) and Stephen Bourne (President, Cambridge University Press, est. 1584).
