Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law Presents:


The New Roles of Corporations in Global Governance

Keynote Speaker Bennett Freeman, Senior Vice President, Sustainability Research and Policy at Calvert Investments


April 18, 2014

This conference, titled 'The New Roles of Corporations in Global Governance,' takes as its starting point the fact that, in recent years, corporations have begun to play a significantly bigger role in international governance; in addition to being the subjects of international regulation, corporations are now becoming increasingly influential participants in the international lawmaking process. This conference, guided by an esteemed panel of experts, will delve into this important development, exploring, among other things, how corporations interact with traditional sources of international authority, how corporations form networks that seek to influence their regulatory environment, how corporations are performing what have traditionally been state functions, and, more generally, the ways in which corporations are redefining the nature of international regulation in the 21st century. The keynote speaker is Bennett Freeman, Senior Vice President, Sustainability Research and Policy at Calvert Investments.
