As the world becomes increasingly dominated by interconnected corporations alongside increasing demands for transparency and accountability, business governance is no longer just about running companies and organisations efficiently, but about managing wider responsibilities. Company directors need to move beyond governance concerns that deal with their functional responsibilities towards understanding how their personal values and actions affect the organisations they lead, and how in turn these affect local and global communities. IJBGE provides a professional forum to address these issues.
Topics covered include
- Philosophies, theories, governance structures
- Composition, tasks, behaviours, effectiveness of Boards
- Selection, remuneration, motivation of Boards/Executives
- Legal/statutory requirements of Boards
- Values, actions, behaviours of business leaders
- Strategies for effective stakeholder governance
- Stakeholder accounting/measurement of business actions
- Ethics of business actions, values/assumptions of business
- Social/societal implications of corporate wealth, power, domination
- Reconciling employee/business/community rights
- Government-business relationships and public accountability
- Challenge of ownership and responsibility
IJBGE aims to critically explore business and managerial strategies, actions, responsibilities and accountabilities for survival in a highly transparent and dynamic global world.
Professionals, academics, researchers, and managers .
IJBGE publishes high quality papers from a wide variety of disciplinary orientations on the general subject of business governance and ethics. The journal style and dialogue will be inclusive and attempt to involve all those who are interested in issues of business governance and ethics: business leaders, managers, employees, stockholders, business regulators (government agencies, national and international), consumer groups, and academics.
The journal will publish theoretical (literature review based), empirical (work surveys and case studies) and critically reflective work (thought-leadership commentaries) describing and developing pertinent insights into the broad subject matter. The style will be, as far as possible, free from specialist jargon.
