about

The last Asian financial crisis, coupled with the western series of corporate scandals, has caused investors and citizens to doubt mangers' ability to guarantee credible financial information about organizations.  Consequently, legislators all over the world have come to realise the necessity of legislating in the area of corporate governance.

This book explores several national corporate governance reform experiences from around the world (including Canada, China, the United States, and the European Union) and offers an explanatory theory with regard to national systems of corporate governance.  It also underlines corporate governance as a management tool and principle. The author argues that each country should be encouraged to build its own system of corporate governance which should be harmonized with its history, culture and the level of its economic development. 

A. Naciri is currently Professor of Finance and Accounting at UQAM School of Business and Chairman of the Montreal International Center for Governance.
