Some Recent Trends and Developments in Company Law

WP 2001-07

This paper summarises some of the findings of the research report that was presented to the December 2000 Stockholm conference. Four topics, on which further activities within the OECD can be recommended, deserve special attention: the functioning of the board of directors, the functioning of the general meeting, the issue of ownership and control, and finally the meaning of the legal capital. These topics are briefly developed, with a recommendation for future regulatory action.
