From the Paper:

"The new proposal of corporate governance is that of a stakeholder approach. The fundamental principle behind this concept is that shareholders are no longer the only members of an organization who have an interest in the conduct and performance of the company. This is supported by Demb & Neubauer (1992) who state "corporate governance is the process by which corporations are made responsive to the rights and wishes of stakeholders". J. Kay (1995) also states "it is the purpose of companies to maximize its profits or to develop its business in the interests of customers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders in the wider community." "
