Major corporate scandals in the early years of the 21st century have placed corporate governance at the front and centre of corporate and government priorities. Today, good corporate governance – the rules and practices that govern the relationship between the managers and shareholders of corporations, as well as stakeholders (employees, pensioners and local communities) – has become a must in the modern business environment.

The publication of Corporate Governance Worldwide provides an update of breaking developments in the field and recommendations for how business should react to new governance requirements generated by governments and the marketplace.
