Fédéralisme, droit des sociétés et gouvernance d'entreprise : quelles leçons l'Europe peut-elle tirer de l'expérience Américaine ?


  • Christine Pochet


In a political structure with several power levels, how should regulatory authority in the area of corporate law be efficiently allocated between the different levels ? This question arises amidst a larger debate over the issue of the organization of governmental action when it takes place in a structure with several hierarchized governmental levels. The aim of this work is to examine the issue of the allocation of corporate lawmaking authority in Europe on the basis of an analysis of the American experience in the field. The paper focuses, in particular, on the consequences of the distribution of power for corporate governance.
