This new and uniquely positioned monograph series draws together high quality research work from established and younger scholars on what is an intriguing and under-researched area of the law. The books offer insights into a variety of legal issues that concern corporations operating on the global stage, including interaction with the WTO, international financial institutions and nation states, in both developing and developed countries. Whilst the underlying foundation of the series is that of company law, broadly-defined, authors are encouraged to take an approach that draws on the work of other social sciences, such as politics, economics and development studies, and to offer an international or comparative perspective where appropriate. Specific topics considered include corporate governance, corporate responsibility, taxation and criminal liability, amongst others. The series undoubtedly offers an important contribution to legal thinking and to the wider globalisation debate.
