Description

This thesis is concerned with one of the most significant features of the evolution of company law in continental Europe - the emergence of a new management structure. The first part of the thesis contains a historical background to the evolution of company law in the countries where this new structure originated, namely, Germany and France. This background provides the basic framework for the second part of the paper, in which the new management structure is examined. In particular, the main features of the two bodies constituting this structure -the managing board, which manageg the company, and the supervisory board, which in turn supervises management -are discussed in some detail. Following this examination, the role of this new managerial structure in the context of European Community law is traced. The thesis concludes with a short analysis of workers' and employees' rights and their possible participation in the management of the company.
