This volume collects the fruits of an unprecedented international academic conference, ‘Public and Private Enforcement of Company Law and Securities Regulation – China and the World’, which was held at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in December 2014 and convened by the Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development (CFRED) of the Faculty of Law of CUHK, the University of Michigan Law School and the Lieberthal Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan. The aim of the conference was to gather, in one place and at one time, some of the world’s top academic specialists, legal practitioners and judicial personnel concerned with public and private enforcement of these two critical aspects of the legal system that govern the global economy and its capital markets, and to engage in an explicitly comparative discourse centred on a rapidly developing China, on one hand, and other developed and developing jurisdictions, on the other.
