Abstract [en]

Boards of directors are a vital part of corporate governance systems. In the on-going discussion about the development of national corporate governance systems, however, little interest has been given to the issue of how and why board behavior changes over time. In this article we attept fo fill this gap by a study of the development of balrd activities in Sweden between 1994 and 2004 and if board behavior is affected by board compostion and board network characteristics. Findings show that board activities have increased drastically during this period. There are robust indications that board size and board centrality affect board activities negatively, whereas gender and age diversity affect some sactivities positively and some negatively, as do board interlocks. These veariables seem to have a postitive effect at first afer which diminishing retursns effects set in. One consistent explanation may be the diffusion of Anglo-American corporate governance norms throughout the network.
