Abstract

The objective of this article is to show how behavioral theories, in particular behavioral finance, can help to build a corporate governance theory allowing to fill the many gaps of the dominant law and finance theory. In particular, we underline the problems raised by the concept of behavioral bias and its integration in the corporate governance theory.

Keywords: Theorie comportementale de la gouvernance, biais comportemental, behavioral corporate governance theory, behavioral bias
