The recent financial crisis has created an impression of a wholesale failure in corporate governance. Considerable debate has ensued and various practitioners, policy makers and theorists have endeavoured to discover whether this is symptomatic of deep seated problems or is the result of inadequacies in the regulative structure of the financial system. All who wrestle with this issue are aware of the need to encourage higher standards of corporate governance without endangering entrepreneurialism, innovation and wealth creation. This whole topic has caused considerable angst and debate between boards and shareholders. There is clearly no room for complacency in the areas of strategy and value-creation. Companies worldwide are now facing a raft of challenges and problems, many of which stem from liquidity and solvency in the global banking system. Increasingly the issue of Corporate Governance is one that warrants our attention. From the American Bar Associations Model Business Corporation Act to the Turnbull Guidance (2005) considerable momentum has been built up, a momentum added to by the Enron debacle and the vicissitudes of the Subprime Mortgage market. This Conference seeks to elucidate a wealth of issues not just related to Corporate Governance, but also business management and general business ethics. Contributions should therefore be of interest to scholars, practitioners and researchers in management in both developed and developing countries targeting a worldwide readership.
