A research agenda for corporate law, edited by Christopher M.

"Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in each area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary. Outlining significant dynamics to pave the way for future evolution in the field of corporate law, this timely Research Agenda explores provocative and cutting-edge developments to identify new directions for scholarly inquiry. Bringing together a diverse group of scholars, the book evaluates doctrinal and normative issues in corporate law from a range of contextual and interdisciplinary viewpoints. Initial sections consider how evolving conceptual foundations, capital markets, social and cultural contexts, and technologies may impact corporate law and governance in years to come. Subsequent chapters explore how such dynamics are further impacted by the increasingly global nature of corporate production and investment markets. Identifying a host of empirical, theoretical, and practical research questions, the impressive array of contributors suggest new directions for corporate legal scholarship. This state-of-the-art Research Agenda will be of great value to students and scholars of corporate law, corporate governance, and business. Its proposed strategies for carrying out future research on the impact of capital markets, technology and global production will also benefit practitioners and policymakers in corporate law, corporate governance, sustainability, business, finance, and economics"--, Provided by publisher
