Corporations do not vote in elections, but their impact on democratic societies is immense. The Corporations and Democracy Conference will bring together scholars and practitioners in various areas of law, business, and the media to examine the complex interactions and balance of power among corporations, governments and individuals in democracies today and explore ways to hold those with power more accountable to society’s broad interest.
The conference is sponsored by the Corporations and Society Initiative at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in collaboration with the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law at Stanford University, Stanford Law School, the Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State at University of Chicago Booth School of Business, the Ira M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School, the Division of Research and Faculty Development at Harvard Business School, and the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford.
This conference will begin at 9:00am and end at approximately 12:30pm Pacific Time on all three days.
