Volume 14 Issue 1, Spring 2008
Little did we imagine, two years ago when we first started planning this issue, just how relevant the theme of corporate governance would prove to be in 2008. In the light of the financial market turmoil of the past few months the topic of corporate governance reforms and what makes a good company is at the forefront of current debate.
This issue of Transfer contributes to that debate. The introductory article by Isabelle Schömann and Norbert Kluge presents the issues at stake. Together with other authors in the first section of this issue they set out proposals for a truly sustainable and socially responsible company.
