Call for Working Papers in Finance, Economics, Accounting, Law, and Business

On June 7, 2013, CalPERS is hosting its inaugural Sustainability & Finance Symposium in Davis, California.  The event is co-chaired by Professor Robert J. Jackson, Jr. of Columbia Law School on behalf of the Ira M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Ownership.  The symposium is part of a larger initiative being undertaken by CalPERS to drive innovative thought leadership that will inform and advance our understanding of sustainability factors and the impact they may have on companies, markets, and investment intermediaries from the perspective of a large, global, long-term, and multi-class institutional asset owner.

The symposium is seeking working paper submissions from scholars and investment practitioners in the fields of finance, economics, accounting, law, and business that will contribute to a rigorous debate and discussion on long-term value creation and capital market stability.

Those interested in submitting papers should send them to Professor Jackson at
