Role Of Representatives Of Minority Shar by Yan Wenjia
Due to the global influence of the shareholder-centered model of the US both China and the EU have taken more measures to protect minority shareholders. In this respect the representation of minority shareholders on the board in particular the system of cumulative voting which was originally designed by the US to protect minority shareholders has become a frequently-discussed issue in China and the EU. This study of comparative law is based upon the comparison of the attitudes among the US China and the EU towards cumulative voting. By analyzing some empirical investigations and massive literatures of American academics as the theoretical foundation it tries to demonstrate whether the convergence of corporate governance towards the shareholder-centered model is inevitable.
