In recent years, corporate governance has gained tremendous importance and interest among emerging and developing countries due to the emergence of global rms for corporate governance and the developments brought about through globalisation concerning harmonisation of procedures and structures. However, there is a limited research and literature found on the topic compared to advanced ecomies. In 2013, for the first time, developing and emerging countries are projected to have bigger ecomies than advanced and developed countries. Although this is only true for GDP measured in purchasing power parity (PPP) terms, it is expected to set the trend for decades to come. Due to the increased importance of emerging ecomies and corporate governance, this book offers insight into various related issues in the public and private sector in the emerging ecomies, written from an academic perspective. It also touches on the issues of corporate fraud, forgery, debt, corruption and integrity in the world of corporate governance. The volume is intended for practitioners and aspiring practitioners who are interested in exploring the topic of corporate governance in the emerging ecomies.
