Wisconsin International Corporate Governance Initiative (WICGI)

Mission Statement:

The objective of the University of Wisconsin International Corporate Governance Initiative (WICGI) is to contribute to improving the quality of corporate governance internationally through research, teaching and collaborative projects involving institutional investors, academics, business and financial leaders, regulators and other interested parties, especially in emerging markets.  By paying careful attention to local culture and practice and working closely with local institutions, WICGI seeks to identify and promote, on a country-by-country basis, those measures most likely to instill investor confidence and facilitate access to global capital markets by local issuers. Consistent with the University of Wisconsin Law School's long tradition of "law in action," WICGI's focus is on real world solutions to the barriers to more efficient operation of capital markets.
