The economic crisis has revived the debate between shareholder and stakeholder capitalism.

Should firms focus more on their shareholders, who own them, or on their stakeholders? What is the state of play in Europe?  What have been the recent evolution?

Paola Schwizer, Professor at SDA Bocconi School of Management, Banking and Insurance Department, answered these questions at an EIB Institute seminar held with Luxembourg Bocconi’s alumni association on November 9, 2016.

Paola Schwizer is also Director of the Research Lab on Corporate Governance and Internal Control Systems at the Ph.D Program of the University of Parma and the University of Rome Tor Vergata. She is an associate of ECGI, European Corporate Governance Network, and a member of the board of various companies.
