Rights of Shareholders

  • Robert W. McGee

One of the OECD (2004) principles of corporate governance is that: “The corporate governance framework should protect and facilitate the exercise of shareholders' rights.”

This chapter examines this principle in some depth.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has published a number of studies on corporate governance. In one study (OECD 2004) it outlined a series of benchmarks intended for use by investors, policy makers, corporations and other stakeholders. Corporations that follow the guidelines provided in this document will have a strong corporate governance system.
