Global Shareholder Stewardship

The Global Shareholder Stewardship is a research group aiming to bring together academics from around the world and national, regional, and international standard setters and practitioners to share experiences, enhance dialogue, disseminate good practice, guide scholarship, and shape future stewardship policy through evidence-based recommendations. Led by Dr Dionysia Katelouzou, and supported by Dan Puchniak, the group consists of 33 academics from 27 different universities across the world.

We are funded by the British Academy's Partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the ESRC Social Science Impact Fund, The Dickson Poon School of Law and the Transnational Law Institute.

Global Shareholder Stewardship Book

On 27 May 2022, we launched Global Shareholder Stewardship, our new edited book that was created following conversations and collaborations first established at our inaugural conference in 2019. The book provides a comprehensive understanding of global shareholder stewardship, and challenges both existing theories and many of the most important debates in comparative law and governance.

The launch took place at our second Global Shareholder Stewardship Conference, which was on the topic of Investor Stewardship in an Uncertain World. Bringing together regulators, academics and practitioners, we spoke about what it means to be an effective steward of capital, and the challenges that exist for the effective implementation of investor stewardship in times of uncertainty. We were thrilled to deliver this conference in association with our event partners, the British Academy and the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI).
