Re-Envisioning Investors’ Anti-Director Rights Index: Theory, Criticism, And Implications, Sang Yop Kang 2015 SelectedWorks

Re-Envisioning Investors’ Anti-Director Rights Index: Theory, Criticism, And Implications, Sang Yop Kang

Sang Yop Kang

‘Law and Finance’ theory – which offers analytical frameworks to measure the protection of public investors and the quality of corporate governance – has dominated the comparative corporate governance scholarship in the last decade. So far, many proponents and critics have had debates on the relevance of the theory and the implications of the theory’s empirical studies. Several important points in relation to shareholder protection, however, have been highly neglected in these debates. In particular, the significance of one-share-one-vote (OSOV) rule has been inappropriately underestimated. In response, this Article explores (1) why OSOV is an utmost critical component in corporate governance ...

Workshop Democracy: Making Policy In Cote D'Ivoire, Max Levin 2014 SelectedWorks

Workshop Democracy: Making Policy In Cote D'Ivoire, Max Levin

Max Levin

Development experts would benefit from a better understanding of how policy is made in developing countries. In this article, I describe how health policy is made in Cote d’Ivoire, from the perspective of a Westerner embedded in the Ministry of Health for 10 months. I provide a narrative of how one health system reform—performance-based financing—moved from policy idea to enacted reform. I describe the origins of the reform in Cote d’Ivoire, how the government came to support the reform, and then the mechanics of how the reform was enacted. I then present observations on how policymaking ...

The Cross-Fertilization Of Human Rights Norms And Indigenous Peoples In Africa: From Endorois And Beyond, Derek M K Inman 2014 Western University

The Cross-Fertilization Of Human Rights Norms And Indigenous Peoples In Africa: From Endorois And Beyond, Derek M K Inman

The International Indigenous Policy Journal

Beginning in the 20th century, international law expanded beyond law between nations to eventually embrace the concept of human rights. However, until recently, human rights efforts were focused mostly on individuals, their rights and the obligations of the state in question. Indigenous peoples, on the other hand, have always articulated their collective rights and, to their credit, achieved notable success.

While there is no doubt that these achievements should be applauded, what is also of interest, and deserves further study, are the ways in which human rights jurisprudence concerning Indigenous peoples’ collective rights intermingle, cross-fertilize, and integrate. This dynamic relationship ...

The Plight Of Modern Markets: How Universal Banking Undermines Capital Markets, Carolyn Sissoko 2014 BLR

The Plight Of Modern Markets: How Universal Banking Undermines Capital Markets, Carolyn Sissoko

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This paper explains the process of competitive deregulation that led both the U.S. and the U.K. to embrace universal banking and to abandon the functional separation of financial activities that had long characterized their financial systems. The paper argues that only a few rare voices in the debate over universal banking that started in the late-1970s and continued for over a decade understood what was truly at stake. The principal argument in favor of separation, then as now, was that the commercial banking system, which is supported by a government “safety net,” needs to be protected from the ...
