The corporate governance SIG welcomes studies exploring all aspects of antecedents and consequences - of corporate governance and boards of directors. Contributions adopting a wide set of theoretical lenses and research methods are strongly encouraged as well as studies analysing corporate governance in different types of enterprises and institutional contexts, including different countries and regional cultures.

GT 02_00 Corporate Governance General Track
This is a general corporate governance track within the Corporate Governance SIG which invites contributions from all areas related to corporate governance that are not explicitly covered by other tracks within the SIG. We welcome studies which are interested in the antecedents leading to particular forms or processes of governance as well as in its consequences. Papers adopting different theoretical lenses, using different research methods, analysing different types of companies and exploring governance in different countries are strongly encouraged.
CORPORATE GOVERNANCE STANDING TRACKS
ST 02_01 Top Management Teams & Business Elites
Business elites and top management teams (TMTs) are among the most influential actors at both firm and society level. Previous research on TMTs and business elites has consistently tried to establish relationships between corporate actors and corporate financial performance, or other firm-level outcomes such as corporate strategic choices. Scholars have focused their attention on corporate leaders at various levels, including individual executives (CEOs), top management teams (TMTs), and other business elites. Despite the large amount of existing research, its results are pronouncedly mixed in their conclusions, and upper echelons research is still plenty of opportunities for further development. Adding to our experience on previous EURAM Conferences, this standing track aims to build a platform for discussion of issues related to different aspects of upper echelons at micro and macro levels.
ST 02_02 Boards of Directors
The role of boards of directors and their influence on firm behavior and firm outcome has been topic of debate. Research spans a wide variety of units of analysis (firm, team, director) as well as methodologies (survey, archival, observational). Indeed, for the purpose of this topic, the effectiveness of boards is an important and growing research stream. The composition of boards, particularly diversity and gender equality issues, the processes in boards, and board task performance are considered inputs to effective boards. This topic seeks to contribute by exploring the antecedents and consequences of board composition, e.g. gender, processes and structures.
