This special issue is designed to spotlight contemporary research on corporate governance, with preference given to research emphasizing corporate governance in a global context and related issues such as the global financial crisis.
Previous research on corporate governance has been focused principally at the national level, with relatively limited consideration given to the role of corporate governance in global markets. As business activities continue to expand globally, however, the relevance and implication of corporate governance theories, mechanisms and models that were originally developed, applied, and tested in an Anglo-American context merits revisiting, for example, in terms of the applicability and convergence of corporate governance models in non-Western contexts, and in terms of global events that provide valuable natural experiments such as the signature governance reforms in the recent past in China and India, and the global financial crisis.
The Special Issue provides an opportunity for contributors to spotlight their contributions to the broad fields of business and economics, political science, and law in terms of corporate governance. Within business and economics, contributions from the sub-fields of accounting, finance, economics, law, marketing, supply chain, international business and management are all welcome.
While a focus on corporate governance is a critical requirement, preference will be shown to research focused on corporate governance in global markets, in terms of new perspectives, issues of applicability and convergence of Anglo-American corporate governance practices in new national contexts, the role governance plays in terms of promoting or retarding CSR efforts, and to corporate governance’s responsibility for and its role as an instrument to respond effectively to the global financial crisis.
