The Governance of Chinese Listed Companies

This research project investigates whether board accountability, as provided for in Anglo-American jurisdictions, exists in China and whether other values are provided for in Chinese corporate governance that address some of the concepts inherent in accountability. Consideration is to be given as to whether the Chinese Code on Companies needs to be modified and, if so, in what way.

The work explores what accountability mechanisms apply in China and whether other accountability mechanisms need to be introduced into Chinese corporate governance and what obstacles there might be to effecting that.
