Dear Colleague

I am writing to you to introduce the recently instituted Research Associate Program at the
Corporate Governance Forum of Turkey (CGFT) with the objective of developing a network of
researchers interested in Corporate Governance issues from a variety of perspectives and

CGFT was founded in March 2003 as a joint initiative of TUSIAD and Sabancı University. Most
important objective of the work program was to create awareness on the importance of Corporate
Governance in Turkey - an objective largely achieved thanks to the local and international
developments, and humble efforts of the Forum. Today, the CGFT continues its work as an
interdisciplinary academic initiative hosted by the Faculty of Management at Sabancı University
and as an institutional member of the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI). CGFT
works closely with the Global Corporate Governance Forum (GCGF) and its researchers
participate in its research network.

CGFT is now inviting researchers to participate in the generation and dissemination of theoretical
and applied research on Corporate Governance in Turkey. We plan to hold a meeting of the
researchers who are interested to join the initiative during the International Conference on
Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets. The conference is a joint event of the Global
Corporate Governance Forum, Asian Institute of Corporate Governance, along with the Millstein
Center, European Corporate Governance Institute, International Corporate Governance Network,
and Corporate Governance Forum of Turkey, which will take place in Istanbul on November 15-
17, 2007. The Research Associate Program meeting will take place on the 15 of November at
18.15 hours. All participants are invited to the opening cocktail of the conference which will start
at 19.00 hours.

Please confirm your participation in the meeting to

We do hope that you will also join the conference by registering on-line ( ).

We look forward to meeting you.
