|Dates:||March 04-05, 2006|
|Description:||Institutions, Politics, and Corporate Governance|
|Subject:||Recent research shows that corporate governance systems are different across countries and can vary through time. This conferences objective is to bring together recent research that investigates the role of legal, economic and political institutions in determining corporate governance systems. It focuses on how the distribution of corporate sector power interacts with institutional developments, and the consequent impact on economic development. Topics include but are not limited to: - What legal, economic, and other institutional factors determine the ownership structure of a countrys corporate sector? What institutional factors determine organizational structures? - How does the balance of power among a countrys diverse interest groups¾corporate insiders, workers, and other stakeholders¾affect its institutional environment and corporate governance structure? - What are the channels by which business leaders influence public policies and affect institutions (such as the presence of effective property rights and financial market development)? In which circumstances do business leaders prefer bad economic systems (e.g. weak property rights)? Which circumstances lead to forces that preserve the status quo? - What are the factors limiting political influence by powerful business leaders? How does this depend on a countrys institutions for political decision-making? [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
