Slide background


Academic Research

We aspire good governance and leadership because we believe its crucial for the societies we life in. In order to promote good governance and leadership, we need to thoroughly understand it. As professionals, but also from a more fundamental and academic perspective. What contributes to good governance and leadership, and what stand in its way? And how do the changes in the environment impact good governance and leadership? In other words, when are boards and top management teams ‘fit for purpose’? 
At the Themis Institute, we care deeply about these questions. Our fellows  are on the faculty of top universities across the globe. Through these affiliations Themis contributes to the development of knowledge and ultimately a scientific knowledge base for good governance and  leadership.
