Journal: Governance Directions

Governance Institute members and subscribers receive a hard copy of our monthly journal, Governance Directions, as part of their Governance Institute membership or association.

Members and subscribers can access previous issues of the journal on our website by logging in.

Once logged in, you will see which articles are hyperlinked and, therefore, accessible.

Non-members cannot access current or previous issues of the journal online, but can access lists of published articles.

The journal has become a valuable medium for Governance Institute members to access and communicate with other industry practitioners and commentators in the fields of governance, law, risk management and administration. Moreover, the journal has fostered an active network of governance professionals who share knowledge and insights.
