Corporate Governance in Egypt
Corporate Governance in Egypt
From the Paper:"A search for "new solutions" in terms of financing of social services in the European Union - partly due to an increasingly "limited role for the state" (Midttun, 2005) - has led the movement for CSR, according to an article in Corporate Governance. The pivotal reasons for emphasis on CSR, Midttun writes (p. 160), are: Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) guidelines; the global compact of the UN; recent social and environmental legislation; socially responsible investment; and human rights campaigns launched by NGOs (non-governmental organizations).
"Because governments assets are shrinking during the current economic downturn, and the media is more influential then ever before - presenting human struggles, needs and desires through live television feeds, on the Internet, and elsewhere - those urgent needs that people have in many countries are being met in part by corporate governance (Korner, 2005, p. 151). There are over 37,000 multinational corporations (that employ "over 70 million worldwide") Korner writes in Corporate Governance, and NGOs - that urge companies to show social responsibility - have "developed into a real force often closely linked to the media" (p. 152). These facts help explain the present dynamics of CSR worldwide.
"The Wharton School of Business (University of Pennsylvania) emphasizes that corporate governance is very different in varying places around the world. "...Globalization seems to encourage countries and firms to be different, to look for a distinctive way to make a dent in international competition rather than converge on a best model" (http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu)."
