  1. Corporate Citizenship

    Corporate Citizenship

    Edited by Dirk Matten, Jeremy Moon
    Corporate Citizenship (CC) has emerged as a widely used way of describing the role of business in wider society. As such, CC has been popular with academics, business leaders and politicians alike, as it locates the private corporation within a network of mutual responsibilities and obligations in their social environment. This collection takes stock of the debate by tracing back its origin, identifying the key topics and delineating the key controversies. The volume places the discussion on corporate citizenship in a political context within the wider debate on the role of business in society. In doing so, the individual chapters feature major contributions by the leading scholars in this area and provide an overview of ongoing developments, in particular at the transnational level.

  10. Governance and Expropriation

    Governance and Expropriation

    Edited by Larry H.P. Lang
    Corporate groups outside the US are often controlled by a complex of ownership links, which typically form a pyramidal structure: a private holding company sits at the top of a control pyramid of several tiers of companies; firms in the lowest tier are the group’s publicly listed companies. The usual practice of expropriation in such groups is to pass bad assets to companies down the pyramid and to pass the proceeds up the pyramid via internal transactions. Learn More

  11. The Life Cycle of Corporate Governance

    The Life Cycle of Corporate Governance

    Edited by Igor Filatotchev, Mike Wright
    This unique collection of new, previously unpublished papers demonstrates the importance of corporate governance throughout the different stages of the life-cycle of firms and organisations, and in particular in the crucial transitions between stages.

The book gives equal consideration to the monitoring and control functions of corporate governance mechanisms, and to the resource and strategic roles of governance in the decision-making process. In so doing it attempts to provide a framework through which to understand the factors that affect the balance between the possible functions of corporate governance. Learn More
