It is not easy to speak about "Corporate Governance". This notion is not the same in every discipline. Moreover law is different in each country. Comparisons are not always possible or allowed. Independent directors for instance do not exist and cannot exist in French law even if they are mentioned in status of companies. Actions for legal redress and even prosecutions could be in default possible.
