Recent corporate scandals, together with the effects of globalization, have led to an increasing interest in corporate governance issues. Little attention has been paid, however, to international laws and recommendations dealing with corporate governance in banking from a global perspective. This impressive international set of expert contributors - academics, practitioners and regulators - remedy the lack of attention by examining the various issues and concerns of this important topic.The regulation of corporate banking and accounting is increasingly promoted through various international bodies. Against this background, the contributors explore aspects of corporate governance in banking from a global perspective: bank regulation and activity expansion in the US, board structure, community banks, the Enron and WorldCom corporate governance failures, a survey of characteristics of the top 100 world banks, as well as case studies of Australian, German and Hungarian banks. Scholars, regulators, and those on the boards of financial institutions will find the analysis of this understudied area of great interest.
