Institute for Corporate Law, Governance and Innovation Policies

The Institute for Corporate Law, Governance, and Innovation Policies (ICGI) is a research institute connected to the Faculty of Law at Maastricht University. ICGI carries out scientific research on its own initiative and on commission by third parties and publishes, consults, and provides PhD research supervision and coaching, education, and training. The object of research is the corporation and its rules and regulations in interaction with its changing environment.


In its research, ICGI focuses primarily on the impact that far-reaching social changes have on corporations, corporate law, and governance including corporate social responsibility. This impact concerns the form, nature, structure, mission, strategy, policy, technological and organisational innovation, and the overall performance of companies: their success and (dis)continuity are thus also part of it. The impact in the opposite direction is also analysed through constructive assessment enabling the development of changes in corporate law and governance in aid of desired social developments.



ICGI seeks to offer the highest standard of professional legal education. We aim to be distinctive in our commitment to both legal research and the importance of teaching. Hence, we provide our students with academic, extracurricular and other resources that will permit them to attain the highest possible level of achievement in legal education. We also prepare them for positions of leadership and service across many areas of legal practice, business, government and community work.
