Abstract

Corporate governance has received much attention in recent years and has been a growing topic for debate in the public domain in both developed and developing countries. This is mainly because of the many financial scandals and failures that have occurred in a number of countries. Good corporate governance is now considered crucial for regulating companies and enhancing their performance. However, the effects of corporate governance on firm performance may vary in developed and developing countries based on cultural, economic and social factors. Therefore, much of the current research now focuses on investigating corporate governance from the point of view of developing countries. The main objective of this research is to understand corporate governance and the effects of corporate governance on firm performance in a unique economic, political and social context such as the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and particularly the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
