9781849801041: Corporate Governance and Complexity Theory

'This book is a major advancement in the area of complexity and corporate governance. By bringing together a range of leading experts in the fields of complexity and corporate governance, this book manages to knowledgeably wed the emerging field of complex systems thinking with the more established area of corporate governance. It brings a range of new and exciting concepts, such as emergence, co-evolution and self-organisation, and integrates them into an overarching and holistic understanding of corporate governance that is a clear benefit to corporate actors and stakeholders. The book is a major resource for both academic and practitioner audiences.'
- Robert Geyer, Lancaster University, UK

`Corporations are usually perceived through the lens of traditional disciplines as creatures of law or as economic agents. The absence of a single language of accountability has been unsatisfactory to the point of contributing to the seeming endemic failures of corporate governance. Corporate Governance and Complexity Theory is a hugely important step forward in introducing a new way of thinking about the impact of corporate power. Its concluding words tell it all. ''The holistic approach adopted by complexity theory consists of looking at all related entities, or in this case all corporate governance actors, that interact and influence each other, within the entire corporate governance environment or corporate governance social ecosystem''. The theory also offers a new interpretation of corporate governance, and thus provides some novel insights. The book is well written, helpfully organized and jargon free. It is exciting in concept and execution. You will enjoy it.'
- Robert Monks, Lens Governance Advisors<

This multidisciplinary book takes an innovative approach to corporate governance by linking governance and complexity theory. It provides important new insights into why governance systems are failing and what may be done to improve this situation.


A key issue that scholars, practitioners and regulators of corporate governance face is the complexity of the relationships between a company and its shareholders, as well as its stakeholders and gatekeepers. The authors, who are corporate governance specialists from a variety of disciplines including law, finance and economics, propose an innovative approach and key insights on corporate governance. In the process they also address some significant gaps in the literature and deal with methodological limitations. This new approach uses concepts from complexity theory to deal with the frequently complex relationships between the corporation and its stakeholders and gatekeepers.


The holistic approach to the study of corporate governance will prove invaluable to academics and postgraduate students in accounting, economics, finance, law or complexity theory with an interest in corporate governance. This book will be also prove to be an essential resource for regulators and practitioners interested in corporate governance issues.

Marc Goergen, Professor of Finance, Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University, UK, Christine Mallin, Professor of Corporate Governance and Finance and Director, Centre for Corporate Governance Research, University of Birmingham, UK, Eve Mitleton-Kelly, Director, Complexity Group, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK, Ahmed Al-Hawamdeh, Law School, Jerash Private University, Jordan and Iris Hse-Yu Chiu, Faculty of Law, University College London, UK

Review:

This book is the outcome of an Ideas Factory that was held by the ESRC, the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Advanced Institute of Management (AIM) Research. The authors were encouraged ''to think outside their traditional research areas, reassess the key issues which impact on the topic of corporate governance and interact with colleagues in distinct disciplines''. The results of the project captured in this book perfectly meet the brief and make fascinating reading. --Marco Becht, Executive Director - European Corporate Governance Institute, Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium

Research on corporate governance typically assumes linear relationships and clear, one-way directions of causality. This book argues that these assumptions are inappropriate and proposes a way forward to deal with the limitations of the existing literature. This is a must read for all scholars of corporate governance and anybody else who is interested in how corporations are governed. --Luc Renneboog, Tilburg University, the Netherlands

For too long the study of corporate governance has been constrained by the straight-jacket of the agency paradigm. Accepting that a rethink of corporate governance frameworks is long overdue, this study takes a multidisciplinary approach. Complexity theory, like systems theory before it, studies systems holistically, identifying relevant components, searching for interactions and feedback. This is an important work offering different interpretations, novel insights, and a new perspective for the study of the subject. We are a long way from a general theory of corporate governance, but this study points us in a new direction. --R.I. (Bob) Tricker, University of Hong Kong and Founder Editor, Corporate Governance - An International Review
