International Journal of Critical Accounting (IJCA), Vol. 11, No. 2, 2020

Abstract: Governments and business practitioners continuously seek to improve quality of corporate governance in order to meet societal objectives. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to review the previous literature in order to identify theories that may be used to explain factors that explain the variation of the quality of corporate governance among state-owned enterprises. The paper employs critical evaluation of literature on key terms based on Boolean search logic between January 1990 to December 2018. The review provides researchers with a multi-theoretical framework that may be used to explain and predict the quality of corporate governance among state-owned enterprises. This study contributes to past research by giving a broad overview of multi-theoretical framework, as well as new insight from social capital theory perspective in a SOEs context. In addition, the study also contributes to a limited study in the public sector. The findings have implications for regulators, government and academics.
