Description

Debating The Future of the Corporation

Grahame Thompson and Sol Picciotto

Date: Wednesday, March 13th, 2013, 1300-1700

Venue: Cardiff Business School, Room E48

Cardiff Business School and the Modern Corporation Project are pleased to invite you to an upcoming workshop at Cardiff Business School on "The Future of the Corporation" with Grahame Thompson and Sol Picciotto.

This workshop brings together two of the leading thinkers in the area of corporate governance to discuss their recent books and debate forms of corporate regulation under global capitalism. The recent ongoing economic recession and the precipitating financial crisis has led to further debate on how to regulate global firms; to whom are such firms responsible and how should their behaviour be monitored and sanctioned? The speakers aim to reach back beyond the dominant frames of shareholder value and principal-agent within which the modern corporation has been discussed since the 1980s and seek to rediscover the relevance of earlier debates in authors such as Berle and Means, Burnham, Galbraith, Marris, Chandler and others in which the legal basis of the corporation and its embeddedness in social structures was addressed from a complex variety of perspectives. These debates support a recognition of the need to radically rethink the relationship between law, politics and the corporation and the challenges that the global nature of modern capitalism poses to how the corporation is conceived. The books by Thompson and Picciotto address this challenge, drawing on interdisciplinary frameworks that enable connections to be made across a variety of perspectives.


Speakers:

Grahame Thompson is Professor of Political Economy at Copenhagen Business School and Emeritus Professor of Politics at the Open University; author of The Constitutionalization of the Global Corporate Sphere? (Oxford University Press 2012); co-author Globalization in Question 3rd ed. (Polity 2009); editor Economy and Society.

Sol Picciotto is Emeritus Professor of Law at Lancaster University; author of Regulating Global Capitalism (Cambridge University Press 2011); Scientific Director at the Oñati International Institute for the Sociology of Law 2009-2011.

The workshop is free and will start at 1300 with a lunch. We can host a maximum of 25 persons, so please book early.
