This Oxford at Said seminar was dedicated to the topic of corporate Governance. Professor Colin Mayer speaks on the role of investors in corporate governance; Professor Paul Davies covers the current debate about executive compensation.

The value destruction caused by the recent financial crisis has brought reforming corporate governance back to the very top of the political agenda. Many commentators call for profound changes to current corporate governance regimes especially with regard to executive compensation. However, opinions diverge on the most effective reforms.
