This research project explores legal strategies safeguarding that the interests of stakeholders affected by the companys activities are taken into account in corporate decision-making. These strategies are valuable because they can prevent harmful short-termism that focuses only on shareholder value and neglects the interests of other stakeholders. The research project will contribute to the existing debate on the role of the company in society, and the development of stakeholder governance and aims to provide a toolbox for both policymakers on an EU and national level and for individual companies. To achieve this, the project uses doctrinal and comparative methods.
