In this article corporate governance in several European countries is examined. Information on a corporate governance report issued by the European Commission has been given. Corporate governance framework of Great Britain and other European countries has been compared. Attitude of Europeans towards punishing white-collar crimes were given. As more European companies look to a broader base of shareholders to raise finance capital, though, the Continent is likely to move closer to the Great Britain model.
