"This edited collection explores transparency as a key regulatory strategy in European business law. It examines the rationales, limitations and further perspectives on transparency that have emerged in various areas of European law including corporate, capital markets and accounting, as well as other areas of law relevant for European (listed) stock corporations. This book presents a clear and accurate picture of the recent reforms in the European transparency regime. In doing so, it endorses a multidimensional notion of transparency, highlighting the need for careful consideration and contextualisation of the transparency phenomenon. In addition, the book considers relevant enforcement mechanisms and discusses the implications of disparate enforcement concepts in European law from the perspective of both private and public law. Written by a team of distinguished contributors, the collection offers a comprehensive analysis of the European transparency regime by discussing the fundamentals of transparency, the role disclosure has in European business law, and related enforcement questions"--Provided by publisher.
"The authors of this book presented drafts of their chapters at a conference on Chios Island on 11 and 12 May 2018 under the auspices of the University of the Aegean, the Union of Greek Commercialists and the University of Munich." -- ECIP preface.
