Prof. Robin Hui HUANG has published an article on “Shareholder Inspection Rights in China: An Empirical Inquiry” in the Hastings International and Comparative Law Review (2021). Shareholder inspection rights allow a shareholder to access the relevant documents of the company in which they hold an interest, so as to address the problem of information asymmetry and reduce the agency costs inherent in the corporate structure. This article conducts a comprehensive empirical study of how shareholder inspection rights are developed and enforced in China.
