This Handbook provides an incisive, rigorous and contemporary guide to research methods in the continually evolving area of corporate governance, offering a welcome focus on holistic approaches to research. Not only analysing existing research methods dominated by the quantitative-qualitative dichotomy, it also explores the crucial need to challenge assumptions and methodologies in order to advance research in the field.

Engaging with critical discussions of corporate governance, this Handbook presents novel approaches to research designs and practices including data collection, sampling and analysis in corporate governance, encouraging scholars to move beyond existing paradigms and conceptions. Its coupling of case studies with theoretical approaches allows the Handbook to scrutinise basic issues in the field while also delving into unknown territory to advance and, indeed, revolutionise methods. Chapters offer a timely opportunity to explore, revisit and critically examine new methodological insights and innovations in the corporate governance scholarship with the purpose of advancing diversity and novel theorising in this field.

This Handbook presents an engaging, innovative and invaluable guide to researchers and higher education students in corporate governance and business management, along with scholars investigating research methods in the corporate governance field.
Critical Acclaim
‘Getting to research corporate boards has never been easy. This book opens the door for researchers to understand board dynamics, rules, structures and contexts from different methodological perspectives, advancing and refining the findings on corporate governance research.’
– Patricia Gabaldon Quiñones, IE Business School, Spain

‘The new Handbook of Research Methods for Corporate Governance is a remarkable, and extremely important, scholarly achievement. Taking their point of departure in the corporate governance field’s urgent need for a more pluralistic and creative pallet of research methods, the editors bring together an impressive set of scholars who share their experiences and insights on how we can develop knowledge that is more theoretically rigorous and practically relevant for a new era. I highly recommend this amazing volume to all scholars and practitioners thirsty for understanding how we can best understand contemporary challenges in corporate governance.’
– Mattias Nordqvist, Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden

‘This is an insightful and comprehensive collection of articles, which brings to the fore the richness of methods and methodological approaches in corporate governance research. In assembling the volume, the editors have moved beyond simplistic dichotomies of qualitative and quantitative research and stimulate the reader to think holistically and contextually about corporate governance research. This is a valuable resource for anyone interested in governance research.’
– Silk Machold, University of Wolverhampton, UK
