Susan Phillips - You take the high road, and we’ll take the high road: The new terrain of co-regulating good governance
Speaker: Susan Phillips, Director, School of Public Policy and Administration, Carleton University, Canada
Limits on executive compensation, quotas for women on boards, good governance hallmarks: a significant development in public policy by governments in more directly regulating ‘good governance’ by businesses and charities. At the same time, the private and charitable sectors are creating new forms of self-regulation, and a wide variety of third party watchdogs are providing better information to shine public light on bad practices.
A new terrain for the co-regulation of governance in private organisations is being created. With a focus on the charitable sector, this presentation examines changing perspectives on regulation and corporate governance. Are the emerging approaches to co-regulation likely to lead to better private governance?
