Overview

The Globalisation of Corporate Governance: The Challenge of Clashing Cultures by Adrian Davies

The structure of corporate governance has made significant progress in OECD countries but it remains imperfectly linked to the activities of many businesses. Its advance on the global stage will be hesitant and slow until its practice in OECD countries is more consistent and convincing. The Globalisation of Corporate Governance explores the challenges of adapting it to different cultural norms and making corporate governance effective for all participants in a global economy.
