INSEAD Working Paper 2015/63/STR/ACGRE

We are making available to all scholars a new dataset on legal protections of minority shareholder rights with repeated annual measures between 1970 and 2011 for 78 countries. Our measure synthesizes 10 different legal provisions contained in national legislation. The data can be used to analyze research topics regarding corporate governance, financial development, stock markets, joint ventures, and other types of managerial and governance issues.
