Corporate disruption and the design of organizations: The law and design of organizations in the 21st century

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This paper explores the issue of 're-making' corporate law though the prism of the United Nations' recent efforts of reducing legal obstacles experienced by micro-, small- and medium sized enterprises in starting and scaling a business. In order to be fully successful, this paper suggests that the UN should go back to business fundamentals and should attempt to build from the ground up based on the real world needs of entrepreneurs, rather than work off already existing corporate legal systems. In this way, it is possible to engage in a more imaginative form of regulatory design in which a clear, open and preferential legal framework for stimulating innovation and business creation can be developed.
