The topical chapters featured in this Research Handbook, contributed by leading scholars from around the world, examine the historical development of corporation and business organization law in the Americas, Europe, and Asia from the ancient world to modern times, providing an invaluable resource for both further historical research and scholars seeking the origins of present-day issues.

Regulating Multinationals in Developing Countries

Edwin Mujih explores the difficulties associated with regulating multinational companies operating in developing countries, with a particular focus on extractive industries. The author highlights the need to establish an international legally binding framework to ensure that multinationals operate in a socially responsible manner to protect local communities and the environment. Edwin Mujih’s analysis reveals that the existing mechanisms for controlling the behaviour of huge multinational entities are of normative force only, that these are particularly inadequate, and that the notion of corporate social responsibility is only meaningful where behaviour can be legally regulated. Regulating Multinationals in Developing Countries features a study of the Chad and Cameroon Oil and pipeline project, which highlights the problems arising in countries that have neither the capacity nor the will to effectively regulate those operating within their borders. The author has evaluated compliance by the parties with their social and environmental obligations. He has found that, despite controversy surrounding inadequate regulation of this project in its incipient stages, the system that was put in place following huge opposition from the affected communities and from NGOs is worthy of attention and could stand as a model for similar projects elsewhere. This first title in Gower's Corporate Social Responsibility Series to approach CSR from a legal perspective provides insight not just into the complexity surrounding efforts to regulate multinationals operating in countries with weak regulatory regimes, but also into the fundamental nature of multinational corporations and the debate about different notions of CSR itself.

The Law on Money laundering

The laws designed to impede the laundering of money are complex and wide-ranging, and span several areas of criminal activity, including drug-trafficking and terrorism. From the 1986 Drug Trafficking Act to the Criminal Justice Act of 1993, legislation has been enacted which is designed to curtail the money-laundering activities of organised crime. But while the current laws are both broad and thorough, their complexity means that it is sometimes possible for those working within legitimate businesses to be caught out unwittingly by a number of the new provisions. This book aims to demystify the subject; it outlines the relevant statutory provisions, links them in cohesive form and provides a clear and concise commentary on each.

The last two decades have witnessed the growth of new forms of entrepreneurial cooperation such as dynamic networks like virtual enterprises and enterprise pools. These business forms are often hybrid, having elements of both contract-based organizations and corporate forms, in particular partnership. This book examines the relative utility of contract and partnership law in fostering and maintaining these emerging business models, focusing on dynamic networks. The book analyses how dynamic networks are organized and set up through, very often, collaborative contracts and how the behaviour of their member firms is regulated. Good faith and fair dealing as a behavioural criterion in contractual and partnership relations, is an important theme of this work. The background and preconditions for the emergence and growth of such business forms is also investigated. The book contains case studies of such networks from different countries in particular Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England and Norway. It examines relevant legal rules in a number of jurisdictions such as England, Norway, Germany, Italy, France and the US. This detailed book will appeal to postgraduate students and academics in the fields of contract law, comparative law, partnership law and business/commercial law. Academics in other disciplines such as economics, sociology and business management will also find much to interest them in this study.

Studies have shown that a company's share price is often linked to how well governed the company is, providing board members with a strong financial incentive to maintain good corporate governance practices. Yet what may constitute good governance will vary across different countries and companies, and there is no 'one size fits all' model of corporate governance. Corporate Governance will help you to become familiar with the principles and practice of good governance appropriate to your company, enabling you to uphold those standards that will improve your corporate reputation while providing reassurance to market regulators. For directors of companies of all shapes and sizes, this is essential reading, and will answer all your questions on what good corporate governance means for you, your company's reputation and its share price.
