Guest Editors:

Behavioural corporate governance examines the effects of managers’, monitors’ and investors’ behaviour on corporate performance and seeks to provide greater realism in understanding agent behaviour within a corporate governance setting. Key concerns include, among others, the reliance on the monitoring model of corporate governance, the independence and effectiveness of the board of directors, the impact of investors on managerial decision making, the role of financial reporting and auditing, and questions on executive compensation. The aim of this special issue is to publish high quality papers, both theoretical and empirical, that promote an understanding of behavioural corporate governance.
