This project is an independent research project on an issue arising from corporate governance that you found particularly interesting. Your submission should take the form of a published research academic paper on a self-selected topic that deals with an issue of corporate governance based on any of the topics covered in the course. Your research should make extensive use of publically available data and academic journals. While you can pick your own topic, you are encouraged to discuss your ideas with the lecturer in advance. You are encouraged to consider research aspects of corporate governance relevant to your own country (Australia and China), business or work interest.
