Gindis, D., Veldman, J. ORCID: 0000-0001-8615-5844 & Willmott, H. ORCID: 0000-0003-1321-7041 (2020). Convergent and divergent trajectories of corporate governance. Competition & Change, doi: 10.1177/1024529420944017


This Special Issue revisits the classic question of comparative corporate governance research, namely whether national corporate governance systems are converging. More specifically, it focuses on several ‘convergence vectors’ which comprise the political, legal, economic and social arrangements that influence or drive the international trajectories of governance systems towards a common denominator. Taken together, the contributors to this Special Issue invite us to think critically about the functional explanations commonly mobilized in favour of convergence and consider instead the convergence debate from a broader and more interdisciplinary point of view.
