Corporate Governance: An International Review -- Call for Papers 

A special issue of Corporate Governance: an International Review – Global Perspectives on Entrepreneurship: Public and Corporate Governance

Governments in both developed and developing countries are in agreement that entrepreneurship and innovation will facilitate economic growth and determine the competitive advantage of nations in the 21st century. Massive amounts of resources are expended to foster both innovation and entrepreneurial activity in these countries. Entrepreneurial activity, or the generation of value through the creation or expansion of economic activity in terms of new products, processes or markets, may take place in both small and large enterprises. It is therefore crucial that public policy makers are able to distinguish between supporting entrepreneurial activity, and merely supporting small and medium sized enterprises.

The real effects of entrepreneurial activity are best realized in conjunction with effective governance. For instance, improved corporate governance at the time of initial public offerings (IPOs) facilitates IPO performance. Also, more effective venture capitalist oversight improves the performance of venture capital backed firms. But there is clearly greater scope for new work on topic. To this end, new research papers could be developed around the following themes:

1. Public policy and entrepreneurial governance: What public policies translate into better governance and thereby enable high-growth entrepreneurial activities versus sustaining low performing SMEs?

2. Investor abilities and entrepreneurial governance: Which investors (such as banks, venture capitalists, angel investors, or others) are most effective in improving governance and thereby enable high growth entrepreneurial activities?

3. Financial contracting and entrepreneurial governance: What contractual mechanisms are most effective in mitigating the scope for entrepreneurial opportunistic behavior and facilitating entrepreneurial growth?

4. Legal systems and entrepreneurial governance: Which legal mechanisms across countries and over time facilitate entrepreneurial governance and outcomes?

5. Institutions and entrepreneurial governance: Apart from legal institutions, what other aspects of institutional settings or infrastructure (such as high-tech parks, universities, virtual incubators, etc.)
