Congrats to Prof. Anand!

News broke today that Professor Anand has been named a 2005 Canada-U.S. Fulbright Scholar. Congratulations! Our university is lucky to have such an accomplished professor.
As a Fulbrighter, Ms. Anand will analyze the costs and benefits of voluntary corporate governance regimes for capital markets stakeholders and the motivations that lead managers to adopt corporate governance practices voluntarily. With this information, capital market participants will be better able to establish where additional mandatory standards are needed and where voluntary compliance can be credibly relied upon. When Ms. Anand completes her sabbatical, she intends to return to Canada to continue her research and teaching. She will also seek to contribute to the ongoing public policy debate about the optimal corporate governance regime for this country.
Corporate governance and corporate crime are important topics in our age of scandals and organized crime. Good to hear researchers in the area are getting support and resources.
