The CGS Research Group emerged with the increasing focus on corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, and regulatory issues by research staff and students at The Australian National University. Although the group developed within the College of Business & Economics at the ANU, we welcome the participation of any researchers associated with the ANU.
The purpose of CGS is to promote development and cooperation across the disciplinary areas relevant to governance of the relationships between corporations and their stakeholders through markets and regulation.
For enquiries on how to become a member of the CGS Research group, please contact the RSA Administration Office, who will forward your request to the appropriate academic member of CGS.
