Abstract

The paper was originally written as a case study of the UK’s current policy approach to increasing gender diversity on corporate boards. It was presented at an EU forum on ‘Women in economic decision-making’ in Oslo, May 2012. The forum was an exchange of good practice between nineteen countries with one government representative and one academic from each. The UK, Norway and Denmark were given as case studies. The UK government has taken a non-interventionist ‘business-led’ multiple-stakeholder approach, to avert the need for an EU level policy intervening in the form of legislation. The paper assesses the effects so far.
