The Duke Atlantic Partnership brings together researchers, corporate leaders, and third sector innovators to share information, resources, and solutions applicable to our shared policy and environmental challenges. We connect researchers and Duke affiliates with thought leaders and policy makers in Europe and the United Kingdom through novel forums, cutting-edge corporate education, and experimental approaches to problem-solving.
The partnership was founded in 2016 by Alexandra E. Sutton and Sierra Smucker, with support from the Sanford School of Public Policy’s Innovation & Impact Fund and gifts of support from the Nicholas School of the Environment, the Fuqua School of Business, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Duke Corporate Education’s London Office. Pledges of further support have been received from the Duke Alumni Club of London and the Duke London Women’s Forum.
To that end, we’ve developed a pilot series of featured researcher/executive education events that will appeal to policymakers, change agents, and environmental leaders across the United Kingdom – while creating a new platform and opportunity for Duke researchers and students to showcase their most current findings and topical research.
Our next guest is Professor Jeffrey Golden who will be discussing global financial regulation in the wake of the financial crisis and what role the court system can and should play. Professor Golden is a specialist arbitrator, mediator and expert with broad experience of a wide range of capital markets matters, including swaps and derivatives, international equity and debt offerings, US private placements and listings, and mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. He has acted extensively for the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA), was a principal author of ISDA’s master agreements and has appeared as an arbitrator and as expert witness in several high profile derivatives cases. He was formerly the founding partner of the US law practice at Allen & Overy LLP and senior partner in the firm’s global derivatives practice. Before joining Allen & Overy as a partner in 1994, he practiced for more than 15 years in the New York and London offices of the leading Wall Street firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
He serves currently as Chairman of The P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation in The Hague and is a member of the Foundation’s Panel of Recognised International Market Experts in Finance. He is also a Governor and Honorary Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he previously held an appointment as Visiting Professor.
