Abstract

This special issue of the Deakin Law Review contains articles based on papers delivered at the forum — ‘Mandatory Gender Quota Legislation: Will Australia follow Europe?’ — held in Melbourne on 20 October 2014. It was the second forum sponsored by the Deakin Law School as well as the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research through the Anneliese Maier Research Award.

The Inaugural International Corporate Governance and Law (ICGL) Forum was held in Münster on 4-5 November 2013. Its theme was intentionally very broad, namely ‘Key Corporate Governance Themes and Issues in a Globalised and Internationalised World,’ in order to identify as many core international corporate governance and corporate law themes and issues as possible.
