Abstract: This study sets out to explain what determines the appointment of outside directors in Korean business groups. Building on the extant theoretical literature on social network theory, the effect of stakeholder networks on the appointment of outside directors in Korean business groups is examined. With the assumption that a firm's social network, which is comprised of the firm's stakeholders, affects the appointment of outside directors, testable research propositions are presented.

Keywords: outside directors; business groups; South Korea; social networks; social network theory; stakeholders; outside appointments; stakeholder networks. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
