About the Authors
  • Starting from a discussion of the theoretical underpinning of the place companies occupy in society, this book explores the consequences of adherence to free market contractualist theory, including the lack of regulatory control of a sufficiently robust nature. Professor Dine comments on the absence of a concept of governance of groups from a comparative perspective and considers the consequences of this absence for the conflict of laws. In particular, she highlights the tragic consequences of globalization by transnationals including polarization of income and environmental damage, and suggests a possible legal framework to prevent future damages.

    • Considers the national, international and global legal issues of the subject in the one book
    • Considers the consequences of global corporate groups operating a free market
    • Considers both theoretical and legal issues

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book is an important contribution to the literature on corporate governance. It is of relevance to company lawyers and environmental lawyers and would certainly interest anyone concerned with global issues … The book is eloquent and passionate and therefore extremely readable. At times its message is disturbing, but Dine intends it to be so. It urges the reader to consider ways of challenging corporate decisions more effectively.' The Modern Law Review
