Abstract

The purpose of the article is to outline some key characteristics of the Swedish corporate governance system and to highlight some of its important historical roots. The ambition is also to relate and compare Sweden in that respect to some other countries. Hopefully, this article will also help the international corporate governance community to better understand some of the Swedish particulars.
