Corporate Governance Conference 2022

The Corporate Governance Conference 2022 provides an excellent opportunity for researchers, academics, practitioners and doctoral students to present their research, share their experience and discuss new and challenging issues in corporate governance.

The conference is linked to a special issue of the South African Journal of Business Management. Subsidy bearing proceedings of the Corporate Governance Conference 2022 will also be published, but only full-length papers qualify. The conference is in-person, with a virtual option for exceptional cases. We encourage delegates to attend in person, to allow for enhanced engagement and collaboration.
