Volume: 13 Topics in Corporate Finance
Price: € 20.00
This volume brings together a selection of the papers that were presented on 20 March 2006 at the OECD ‘Exploratory Meeting on Corporate Governance Related Dispute Resolution’, which took place at the Stockholm Center for Commercial Law and the papers delivered at the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs’ conference on ‘Delaware Comes to the Netherlands’ which took place on 18 April 2006 in The Hague. The Stockholm Exploratory Meeting brought together leading scholars from Europe, Asia and the US and experts from both OECD and non-OECD countries to focus on specialized courts and arbitration as alternative mechanisms for resolution of corporate governance related disputes. The conference in The Hague attracted leading scholars and judges from the State of Delaware and the Netherlands to make contributions and give comments on the quality of corporate law and the role of specialized courts in their respective jurisdictions. While the conferences were organized separately, the topic of corporate governance and dispute resolution in Europe and the United States was addressed by scholars participating in both conferences and consequently the editors decided to organize this volume around that theme. The editors also included a number of articles published elsewhere that address the question how corporate governance related enforcement mechanism could be re-directed in the future.
