This chapter studies director networks, which have gained increasing attention from sociology, finance, and management. It considers the argument that these networks have an interesting role in corporate governance and then reviews their rules in major developed countries. The chapter goes on to outline the main results from the academic literature on director networks from different disciplines. It also shows how director networks can be empirically captured and can quantify network information.
