On 16 April 2020, the Global Corporate Governance Colloquia and the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) held the 24-Hour Global Webinar ‘The COVID-19 Crisis and Its Aftermath: Corporate Governance Implications and Policy Challenges’ to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, its corporate governance implications and, most importantly, the way forward. The Webinar brought together prominent scholars, practitioners and policymakers to exchange views on the policies that need to be adopted to foster resilience and facilitate the road to recovery from this extraordinary crisis. The Webinar presentations were recorded and can now be viewed here. The event started at 9am local time in Melbourne for a 2-hour session organized by Monash University and then moved eastwards, with further sessions organized by University of Tokyo, Seoul National University, National University of Singapore, Peking University, Tel Aviv University, IDC Herzliya, Goethe University Frankfurt, Swedish House of Finance, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, Columbia University, Harvard University, Yale University, and Stanford University, and a final wrap up session which ended at 9.05am Melbourne time.
The Oxford Business Law Blog, together with Professor Luca Enriques of the University of Oxford and ECGI, liveblogged the event on Twitter under the hashtag #globalwebinar.
Over the course of the coming weeks, the Oxford Business Law Blog will be featuring a series of posts from the presenters at the Webinar.
