From the Paper:

"The term "corporate governance" refers to a process whereby the interests of all of the stakeholders involved in a corporation are taken into account in its management. In this regard, corporate governance is defined by Fort and Schipani (2003) as "a top management process that, when operating correctly, should manage value creation and value transference among various corporate claimants in a way that ensures accountability toward those claimants" (377). In the case of privatized national enterprises, the stakeholders involved can even include an entire country's population. For instance, Fort and Schipani add that, "Claimants can be broadly defined to include all of those with a stake in corporate operations, including shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers, creditors, and the local community" (377).
"The definition of corporate governance provided above therefore includes elements of efficiency as well as fairness. Although effective corporate governance provides transparency in operations and a goal of providing value creation for all of the stakeholders involved, it can also contribute to a nation's economic growth in other ways, including a reduction of regional violence (Fort & Schipani 2003). As a result, effective corporate governance can contribute to a peaceful society during periods of political turmoil and changes in the balances of power (Mayer 2002)."
