Centre for Corporate Governance Research

The objective of the Centre for Corporate Governance Research (CCGR) is to improve the insight into how the governance of firms influences the welfare of its stakeholders.

The Centre for Corporate Governance Research (CCGR) focuses on empirical research and primarily studies Norwegian firms. The projects often use data that are difficult to obtain in other countries (such as unusually detailed ownership data for listed firms and high-quality accounting data for non-listed firms) or that reflect institutional environments which are unique internationally (such as mandatory representation of employees and females on the board of directors). CCGR pays special attention to the private industry in general and to non-listed firms and family firms in particular.

The quality control devices of CCGR are a careful selection of research teams, a commitment to publishing in reputable academic journals, close interaction with the business community and regulating bodies, and a policy of disseminating the findings to the general public through the media.
