Resource description

Currently, the corporate governance has the agenda of categorizing reality andthereby determining which systems are more effective and efficient in a givencontext. A question is posed; how has the internationalization of markets,liberalization, deregulation, and privatization adapted to rapid changes intraditionally based models of corporate governance? When corporate governancepractices are exported from one country to another, they tend to be translated andcustomized to local practices before being adopted. The objective of this thesis isto examine this type of adaptation and explain the circumstances that led to acollapse of governance mechanisms, using Iceland as an example.
