Corporate Governance

Israel's market conditions and regulatory environment offer unique opportunities for empirical research that could substantially contribute to the literature on corporate governance and financial regulation and assist lawmakers in Israel and around the world in making sound policy decisions. The Center offers legal scholars and financial economists a genuinely interdisciplinary environment for conducting rigorous research on Israel's capital markets, and provides them with resources for hand-collecting data and establishing databases. Empirical studies are vital for designing an effective system of financial regulation and investor protection. Thus far, however, there has been little empirical research on Israel's capital market that could assist lawmakers, who are often required to adjust Israel's regulatory landscape to evolving market conditions.
