A collection of empirical and theoretical papers on independent directors’ performance (Updated November 24, 2023)

The editorial team of the Publishing House “Virtus Interpress” has updated the collection of empirical and theoretical papers published in Corporate Ownership and Control journal during last few years dedicated to the performance of independent directors (outside directors, non-executive directors).

We hope that the aforementioned collection of papers will be useful for those scholars pursuing research in the field of corporate governance (specifically the role of independent directors):
