About the Authors
  • The business corporation is one of the greatest organizational inventions, but it creates risks both for shareholders and for third parties. To mitigate these risks, legislators, judges, and corporate lawyers have tried to learn from foreign experiences and adapt their regulatory regimes to them. In the last three decades, this approach has led to a stream of corporate and capital market law reforms unseen before. Corporate governance, the system by which companies are directed and controlled, is today a key topic for legislation, practice, and academia all over the world. Corporate scandals and financial crises have repeatedly highlighted the need to better understand the economic, social, political, and legal determinants of corporate governance in individual countries. Comparative Corporate Governance furthers this goal by bringing together current scholarship in law and economics with the expertise of local corporate governance specialists from twenty-three countries.

    • Unique collection of reports on corporate governance allows reader to study the corporate governance regimes of major economies, dynamic emerging markets and smaller countries with interesting approaches
    • All reports share a common conceptual basis, thereby assisting readers who wish to follow certain issues, such as the composition of boards, across several jurisdictions
    • General Report analyses the most interesting corporate governance regimes and discusses the key literature in law and economics
