Shareholder Voting Rights and Practices in Europe and the US
This book provides detailed analysis of the rules and practices in sixteen European jurisdictions and the United States, covering issues such as convening the general meeting, depositing and blocking of shares, participation rights, setting of the agenda, voting rights and proxy rules. The authors also aim to make companies aware of practices which may hamper effective shareholder participation and, in comparing the different rules and practices, to identify areas where further harmonisation might be undertaken within the European Community framework.
The papers collected here are the result of a conference organised by Professor Theodor Baums, of the University of Osnabrück and Professor Eddy Wymeersch, of the University of Ghent.
