Professor Charles Sampford FGCA is the Director of the Institute for Ethics, Governance and Law, Griffith University, Australia, a strategic research centre established on the initiative with the UN University that came to include QUT, ANU, OP Jindal Global University and the Center for Asian Integrity.
He has written over 150 articles and chapters and has completed thirty two books and edited collections. He has also won nearly twenty million dollars in grants, consultancies and awards for research work he has led, notably on corruption and integrity systems. His work on the rule of law includes Retrospectivity and The Rule of Law (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006) and numerous speeches, essays and articles dating back to 1988.
His work on climate change goes back to a keynote at the World Council of Churches colloquium on carbon trading in 2000 and has continued with his arguments that we need to re-imagine ‘the good life’ in sustainable terms and back it up with institutional mechanisms (including a ‘carbon added tax’) to support the process and the low carbon industries that will support it.
Prof. Sampford’s work on corporate governance has always highlighted the variety of disciplines that can contribute (law, ethics, politics and economics). He was worked extensively in the area of governance in the UK, Europe, Australia, South East Asia and the Pacific. In Africa, he has collaborated with the Global Integrity Alliance headed by the World Bank and with the African Union on Protection of Civilians.
Professor Sampford is also a barrister, Program Leader of the Law Futures Centre and Foundation Dean and Professor of Law, both at Griffith Law School, Nathan, Australia.
