Editors: Pauline V. Urlacher
Book Description:
Corporate governance is the set of processes, customs, policies, laws and institutions affecting the way in which a corporation is directed, administered or controlled. Corporate governance also includes the relationships among the many players involved (the stakeholders) and the goals for which the corporation is governed. The principal players are the shareholders, management and the board of directors. Other stakeholders include employees, suppliers, customers, banks and other lenders, regulators, the environment and the community at large.

Corporate governance is a multi-faceted subject. An important theme of corporate governance deals with issues of accountability and fiduciary duty, essentially advocating the implementation of policies and mechanisms to ensure good behaviour and protect shareholders. Another key focus is the economic efficiency view, through which the corporate governance system should aim to optimize economic results, with a strong emphasis on shareholders welfare. There are yet other aspects to the corporate governance subject, such as the stakeholder view, which calls for more attention and accountability to players other than the shareholders (e.g.: the employees or the environment).

Recently there has been considerable interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations, particularly since the high-profile collapses of a number of large U.S. firms such as Enron Corporation and Worldcom.

Board members and those with a responsibility for corporate governance are increasingly using the services of external providers to conduct anti-corruption auditing, due diligence and training.

This new book presents recent research on this frontal field.
