Seminar: Board of directors in European companies – Aarhus (Denmark)

Board of Directors in European companies – Reshaping and harmonising their organization and duties

Many initiatives, though not all, have been part of the corporate governance movement and have thus been in the nature of soft law and directed at listed companies. There are currently further initiatives in the pipeline that are aimed at harmonising or reshaping the working of the boards of European companies, as can be seen in the Green Paper on Corporate Governance, the report of the Reflection Group etc. This seminar ahead of the publication of a volume on Board of Directors, took stock of the status of the initiatives which have been debated so far, to analyse whether the rules which have been adopted form a coherent system and to examine how these initiatives affect national law.
