Why is it important?

This technical paper provides a comprehensive depiction of takeover mechanisms in an emerging economy context as a means of investor protection. Further using a comparative lens, it analyses the relevance of convergence of takeover laws. Thus, advances the theoretical knowledge of limited extant work on external corporate governance mechanism in an emerging economy context.


Working with an erudite team with varied expertise provided a rich environment to discuss and deliberate on the topic of investor protection. Lens of an external mechanism is a worthwhile contribution in emerging markets like India.
