Summary
Using a range of case-studies, this book analyzes corporate governance relationships between several African countries and the international community, providing an ethical assessment of issues surrounding globalization and adherence to external governance mechanisms. Employing a methodological approach, Corporate Governance in Africa critiques occidental perspectives of corporate governance in relation to the needs of separate states, and the contradictions that arise when local cultures are not taken in to consideration. With case studies from Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and The Gambia the book presents a comprehensive view of North, East, West and South Africa with contributions from global experts in the field. The authors critique the transformations deemed necessary for governance procedures in order to facilitate confidence and inward investment for these African states.
