Improving corporate ethics, governance, and financial risk regulation through objective, empirical research and analysis.
The RAND Center for Corporate Ethics and Governance, or CCEG, is committed to improving public understanding of corporate ethics, law, and governance. The Center also addresses related problems in public policy and risk management, particularly concerning the relationship between regulators and the private sector. The Center carries out studies with support from government, foundation, and private-sector sponsors. In all instances, our work reflects a commitment to impartiality, objective analysis, and multi-disciplinary problem solving.
