Abstract: This paper examines sectoral differences in the centrality of transnational corporations between 1983 and 1998, as indicated by networks of global interlocking directorates. Fortune Global 500 firms are first classified by economic activity. We then identify the interlocking directorates both within and across sectors to determine what type of company is most central at these two periods.

Abstract: Over the last decade, the multiplication of high profile corporate scandals and bankruptcies has put the control of public companies’ upper management at the forefront of the agenda. From this point of view, information disclosure is universally regarded at the cornerstone of a proficient institutional design. Yet, reliable information disclosure crucially depends on corporate governance: who is accountable for the production and certification of financial and non-financial reporting? Invariably, the analysis point to the responsibility of the board of directors. The “Conventional wisdom” considers ‘independent’ board members as the essential attribute to improve the quality of public disclosure. In a sense, this approach neglects expertise as a crucial quality for board members, or at least subordinates it to independence. Arguably, for certain business models, effective certification requires firm-specific expertise. It will be the case, in particular, whenever intangible resources are an important value-driver for the firm. However, we argue that this form of expertise is negatively related to independence as it is commonly measured and evaluated. As a consequence, focus on independence may have (had) adverse consequence, by reducing the ability of the board to collectively certify financial and non-financial accounting information. By contrast, “grey” or “affiliate” directors may enhance the overall quality of financial and non-financial statements. This category includes worker representatives, as they are provided for public companies by virtue of law in more than 10 EU member States

3. Heemskerk, Eelke. "European Integration and the Business Elite: The formation of a pan-European network of interlocking directorates?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SASE Annual Conference, Sciences Po, Paris, France, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p376804_index.html>

Abstract: This paper investigates the emerging patterns of European corporate elite networks. It asks what the configuration and character of the emerging European corporate network looks like. In particular the aim is to identify the European corporate elite: the group of directors who connected the control centres of corporate Europe. The mapping and subsequent analysis of the network of interlocking directorates confirms that a European corporate network is indeed emerging. However, a combination of inter-corporate and inter-personal network analysis reveals that the intercorporate network rests on a very small group of European corporate elite members: it remains the playground of a select few of pan-European big linkers. Although financial institutions and bankers do appear in the upper echelons of the network, they do not occupy crucial positions. Rather, it are the (former) CEO’s of Europe’s largest big non-financial businesses who knit together the network of interlocking directorates. At the level of the European corporate elite, interlocking directorates do not provide the social infrastructure reminiscent of the traditional national business communities.

Abstract: Existing research on film directors are divided into studies which emphasize individual creativity and aesthetic visions, and studies which focus on historical, politico-ideological, and industrial contexts. Film studies (auterism) has positioned in the former, while sociology has placed itself in the latter. I attempt to move toward a critical synthesis of the two approaches by relying on the theories and concepts presented in the “new sociology of ideas” (Camic and Gross 2001). The steps toward the “new sociology of film directors” are two-fold. 1) To examine the interaction between the self-identity of directors characterized by relatively coherent filmmaking styles and the strategic positioning of directors in the existing reward systems (e.g., political, economic, artistic). 2) To analyze the linkages between macro-social factors (e.g., broad political, economic, and social situations of the time during which a director is active), meso-institutional factors (e.g., how the film industry and its production, distribution, and exhibition systems are organized), and micro-local factors (e.g., family and educational backgrounds). Director Xie Jin (1923-2008), one of the most prominent Chinese film directors, presents an ideal case for illustrating the utility of this new sociological approach because of his distinct self-identity as the auteur of “political melodrama” and his strategic deployment of what has been called the “Xie Jin Model” of film production. Because his career had spanned nearly six decades of China’s turbulent contemporary history, I can elucidate how his self-identity and strategic choice have interacted with the chronological shift in macro, meso, and micro social contextual factors.
