Corporate Governance Networks in Turkey

Alper Duman () and Efe Postalci

No 904, Working Papers from Izmir University of Economics

Abstract: We provide an analysis of corporate governance networks implied by members of board of directors of 319 companies listed in Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE) for the year 2007. Our configuration yields a bipartite network for which we provide small world statistics in addition to the usual measures commonly used in network analysis. We find that the networks have low density. However, within the giant component, the average path among agents is very low and the clustering coefficient is considerably high.
