Recently Prof. Kostyuk, director of the Virtus Global Center for Corporate Governance established a partnership with the Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance, Deakin University, Australia.
Deakin University’s Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance (CCC-G) undertakes research into comparative corporate governance in order to identify contemporary corporate governance trends and best practices to ensure responsible, sustainable and long-term prosperity and growth for corporations, including taking into consideration the interests of all stakeholders as well as society interests.
The focus of the Centre is providing solutions to the following problems:
- What is seen as the modern and rearticulated ‘purpose of’ for-profit corporations?
- Identifying the best corporate governance practices that are aligned with responsible behaviour by corporations and sustainable and long-term prosperity and growth for corporations;
- To identify and give substance to corporations’ wider responsibilities apart from shareholder value maximisation and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR);
- Analyse and compare reporting on non-financial issues as corporate governance tool that can affect and change corporate behaviour for the better;
- Extract core corporate governance principles with actual impact to enhance good corporate governance from Corporate Governance Codes already in place in many countries.
We look forward to fulfilling research and academic projects together with the members of the center to facilitate knowledge in the field of corporate governance on the international scale.
