Global Business Law Seminar

Corporate Governance – Comparing Japan and Germany

November 26, 2016

Japan’s system of corporate governance is presently undergoing profound changes. Corporate governance research has mainly focused on comparisons with the US and the UK, but there is yet another successful capitalist model, namely Germany. Germany’s system of corporate governance also underwent great changes especially after the so-called Schroeder reforms. A comparison with Germany will provide a new perspective on the ongoing discussions about corporate governance reform in Japan.

The three sessions of the symposium cover 1. shareholders, 2. employees, and 3. boards. In each session one expert on the German and the Japanese side will deliver a presentation followed by short Q&A. A panel discussion undertaking an overall comparison of the two systems will conclude the symposium.
