"Multinational enterprises, corporate groups and supply chains in a globalised world"

The IUKR in collaboration with Deakin Law School’s Centre for Comparative and Corporate Governance (CCCG), co-hosted a conference on “Multinational Enterprises, Corporate Groups and Supply Chains in a Globalised World”, on 3-4 November 2017. Held at Bucerius Law School, the two-day event afforded an exciting opportunity for scholars to engage in dialogue about regulatory challenges and approaches, and the future role for company law and corporate governance. 

Multinational Conference

The conference drew participants from Australia, Asia, Europe and the United Kingdom, including speakers from Deakin Law School, the Copenhagen Business School, Bristol Law School, the University of Sheffield, the University of Wolverhampton, the University of Auckland, the University of Münster, the University of Kassel, Seoul National University, the University of Copenhagen and the University of Essex. 

The participants addressed a variety of topics, amongst others, the “Disclosure and Transparency in Group Context”, “Supply Chains and Regulation”, “Corporate Accountability of Human Rights Violations”, “Transparency of Corporate Beneficial Ownership”, “Stakeholders and Shareholder Primacy,” and “The State Duty to Protect against Human Rights Violations through Transnational Business Activities.” The aim of the conference was to explore in depth the so-called regulatory gap in supply chains which allows multinational enterprises to outsource not only the production but also the legal liability to suppliers, and consider recent developments in the home states of multinational enterprises intended to overcome this gap. 

The conference was jointly organised by Professor Jean du Plessis (Deakin Law School) and Professor Jörn Axel Kämmerer (Chair in Public Law, European Law and Public International Law at Bucerius Law School) as part of the 2017 International Corporate Governance and Law (ICGL) Forum. The ICGL unites leading corporate law and corporate governance scholars from around the world. 

The event was co-sponsored by the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The website for the conference can be found at:
