Anne Lafarre presents paper at EALE Conference London

At the 34th Annual Conference of the European Association of Law and Economics (EALE) that was held on 14-16 September 2017 in London, Anne Lafarre presented her paper on Small Shareholder Participation in European AGMs.

In this research, she studies the small shareholder turnout decision and provides some important insights for the debate on shareholder rights and the role of the AGM in corporate governance. The results show that, despite the criticism, the AGM still plays a role in small shareholder monitoring, but there is also room for improvement.
