Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance

The Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance undertakes research into comparative corporate governance in order to identify contemporary corporate governance trends and best practices.

This is to ensure responsible, sustainable and long-term prosperity and growth for corporations, including taking into consideration the interests of all stakeholders and society interests.


Our focus 

The focus of the centre is to provide solutions to the following problems:

  • What is seen as the modern and rearticulated 'purpose of' for-profit corporations?
  • Identify the best corporate governance practices that are aligned with responsible behaviour by corporations and sustainable and long-term prosperity and growth for corporations.
  • Identify and give substance to corporations' wider responsibilities apart from shareholder value maximisation and corporate social responsibility.
  • Analyse and compare reporting on non-financial issues – a corporate governance tool that can affect and change corporate behaviour for the better.
  • Extract core corporate governance principles with actual impact to enhance good corporate governance from corporate governance codes already in place in many countries.

ASIC Conference

On invitation from the Australian and Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), Professor Sandeep Gopalan (Dean and Professor of Law, Deakin Law School) and Professor Jean du Plessis (Director, Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance and Professor of Law, Deakin Law School) addressed a group of 48 members of ASIC's Management Investment and Superannuation (IMF) team.

Held on Tuesday 8 March 2016, the delegates came from all over Australia to present at the ASIC – Investment Managers Superannuation (IMS) Conference, to the theme of 'Workforce Diversity'.

Both Professor Gopalan and Professor Du Plessis focused on the merits and advantages of board gender diversity, and speculated whether or not the business case for more women on boards should be the main argument for or against better board gender diversity.

ASIC Commission John Price chaired the session while Mr. Tim Walker, Senior Manager and ASIC's Diversity Officer introduced the speakers.

Rotary District Conference

On Saturday 19 March 2016, Jean du Plessis (Director, Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance and Professor of Law, Deakin Law School) addressed approximately 350 delegates attending the Rotary District Conference.

The conference theme was 'Ethics in Leadership'. Professor Du Plessis focused on the importance of business ethics and, in particular, the importance of a code of conduct. He argued that the ethical tone should be set at the top, but the ethical behaviour should be promoted throughout any organisation.

Dan Simmonds, Managing Principal of Harwood Andrews Lawyers, chaired the session and emphasised the importance of different types of ethical conduct in different environments and 'what is really the truth'.

Paul Cohen, Acting CEO of Barwon Health focused on ethical behaviour in a medical conduct, while Stephanie Beard, Human Resources Manager at Harwood Andrews, emphasised the importance of strong leadership in an organisation, and fair treatment and openness in the workplace to create a friendly and collegial working environment.

Corporate Governance Conference, Hong Kong

On 25 and 26 April 2016, Professor Jean du Plessis, Director of the Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance (CCC-G) organised an International Corporate Governance and Law Forum, hosted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School. The primary sponsor for the Forum was the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation through Professor Du Plessis Anneliese Maier Research Award (2013-2018).

The forum focused on ‘Reflections on Voluntary Corporate Governance Codes: is it now time to move on from a ‘soft law’ approach to a ‘hard law’ approach?’ and will examine whether self-regulation is the most effective way to ensure corporations act responsibly and adhere to good corporate governance principles.

Professor Du Plessis says, ‘The ability to organise a high-calibre event such as this is largely due to the reputation and authority of Deakin Law School as a centre of expert knowledge in the area of corporate governance and corporate law. This is in line with the commercial law focus of Deakin Law School.’

The Dean and Head of DLS, Professor Sandeep Gopalan, opened the forum and also delivered a paper on ‘The creeping codification of non-financial disclosure’, with a focus on US legislation aimed at preventing trade in ‘conflict minerals’. His opening address was followed by presentations by experts in the field from institutions in Germany, Australia, China, England, Scotland, Singapore, the USA and Norway.

The Centre for Comparative Corporate Governance was established to conduct research into international trends and best practice in corporate governance, with the aim of ensuring responsible, sustainable and long-term growth for corporations. The comparative focus of the centre is unique and distinguishes it from other centres in the area of corporate governance.

Professor Du Plessis speaks on tbs eFM This Morning, South Korea

Professor Jean du Plessis discusses his topical research on tbs eFM This Morning.

Join Deakin Law School Professor Jean du Plessis, as he discusses Seoul City's plan to adopt a management system called co-determination (Mitbestimmung). Forging a way for employees to have a voice within their company, by giving them seats on their board of directors, the system would greatly impact on the way organisations are currently run. In the name of economic development, companies are resisting this change, arguing that it would get in the way of day to day business.

Professor du Plessis, who has researched this topic extensively, speaks with Alex Jensen from tbs eFM This Morning, South Korea.
