A critical analysis of the Ethiopian Commercial Code in light of OECD Principles of Corporate Governance


This dissertation critically analyzes whether the current Ethiopian share company law (part of the Commercial Code) envisaged such outcomes or not by using the six key minimum standards of OECD Principles of corporate governance as a template. It demonstrates how the legal and regulatory framework of the share company law provisions apparently has failed to create incentives for market players and also failed to promote transparent and efficient market. To smooth the progress of new investment and provide adequate investors’ protection, this dissertation recommends Ethiopia should revisit and update its share company law in light of the relevant OECD Principles by taking into account its own legal, economic and cultural circumstances.
