Call for Papers: National Conference on Role of National and International Policies in Corporate Governance | School of Law, Sushant University

CCLRT (Centre for Corporate Legal Research and Training), School of Law, Sushant University is organizing Conference on Role of National and International Policies in Corporate Governance in collaboration with Glocalex on 26th April 2021.

Corporate governance involves the mechanisms, processes and relations by which corporations are controlled and directed. Governance structures and principles identify the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation (such as, e.g., the board of directors, managers, shareholders, creditors, auditors, regulators, and other stakeholders) and includes the rules and procedures for making decisions in corporate affairs. Corporate governance includes the processes through which corporations’ objectives are set and pursued in the context of the social, regulatory and market environment.

Governance mechanisms include monitoring the actions, policies, practices, and decisions of corporations, their agents, and affected stakeholders. Corporate governance practices are affected by attempts to align the interests of stakeholders.

In India, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) defined the term stating that “corporate governance deals with laws, procedures, practices and implicit rules that determine a company’s ability to make informed managerial decisions vis-à-vis its claimants – in particular, its shareholders, creditors, customers, the State and employees. There is a global consensus about the objective of ‘good’ corporate governance: maximizing long-term shareholder value.”

Major International Developments in Corporate Governance

The concept of Corporate Governance took roots in countries like US and UK and have subsequently spread to other countries. After 1990, the transition from central planning to market-driven economies, particularly the privatization of state-owned companies, and the need to provide governance rules for the emerging private sector, brought the issue of corporate governance to the centre stage. As a fall out of the 1997 economic and financial crisis, Asian countries too became keenly interested in the issue of corporate governance. The OECD took early initiatives to address governance issues. Since the mid-1990s, at an international level, various corporate governance reports, guidelines and regulations have come into existence.

In this article the emphasis has been made on the following major international developments in corporate governance: Cadbury Committee Report, OECD Principles, The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Other International Development, Hampel Report, Blue Ribbon Report, CalPERS’ Global Governance Principles, The European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI), King Committee on Corporate Governance, Higgs Report: Review of the role and effectiveness of non-executive directors, ASX Corporate Governance Council Report, The Combined Code on Corporate Governance.

Major National Developments in Corporate Governance

In India, a small beginning was made by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in the field of good corporate governance which is explained below. Thereafter, various committees have been constituted to give recommendations in this regard viz. Kumar Manglam Birla Committee, Naresh Chandra Committee, Narayana Murthy Committee, etc.

All these efforts focused the attention of the Indian corporate sector, on the imperative need to evolve new norms of governance to sustain and develop Indian industries on healthy lines and to constitute the corporate boards in such a manner that they manage the affairs of the corporate body with better accountability to shareholders and achieve transparency of operations with disclosure of both financial and non-financial data through annual and other periodical reports.
