Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a chair/*Professorship
in Governance, Regulation, Risk and Compliance* at the Center for Corporate
Governance (CCG), which is a part of Department of International Economics
and Management (INT).

CCG is one of the leading centers, in the area of corporate governance
research, in Europe. Historically, our research and teaching have focused
on board work, industrial foundations and board diversity. Lately, the
center has also had increasingly focus on board strategy, risk management
and regulation, especially in the financial sector.

Governance, risk and compliance are increasingly seen as a whole.
International board work is becoming gradually more complex, new risk
factors are emerging, and many business activities are getting
significantly more regulated by various kinds of external and governmental
bodies. These factors are becoming an essential part of modern board work;
their impact on long term economic performance is still to be assessed,

In recent years board work has become regulated to an unprecedented extent,
particularly in the financial sector, and new governance models have
emerged. Regulators have sought to influence shareholders (e.g. the
European Shareholder Rights Directive), board behavior (e.g. corporate
governance codes), executive compensation (e.g. Say on Pay), auditing (e.g.
mandatory rotation of auditors), disclosure, risk taking, capital structure
and many other aspects of the corporate governance system.  However, the
rationale and impact of this massive intervention as a whole remain unclear
and the processes which drive it are poorly understood. CCG addresses some
of these emerging questions in an innovative major research project,
entitled “Nordic Finance and the Good Society”. More information may be
found at

This new chair in Governance, regulation, risk and compliance, will
contribute to the research project and is expected to be active in the
European policy debate. Academically, important research areas will include
the (political) origins and (economic) effects of governance and regulation
including the long term consequences of complexity as more layers are added
to existing laws. This will include cost-benefit analyses of regulation and
studies of regulatory processes as they unfold in politics and public
administration. The scope for push back and dismantling of harmful
regulation will also be a key concern.

Examples of research areas that the chair might cover:

• Regulation inside the European Union and the consequences of it. What are
the consequences in terms of cost, innovation, flexibility, employment and
value creation? The need for simplification is obvious, but how should it
be achieved? What is the minimum regulation consistent with social and
business efficiency?
• In this new operating environment, how do boards manage and mitigate
internal and external risks? What are the real-life consequences of this
new order in the terms of other, more traditional board responsibilities
(like strategic development, CEO selection, compensation policies, etc.)?
