The Societas Europaea (SE) – Time to start over? Capturing the Zeitgeist of the 21st Century.Meiselles, Michala; Graute, Marta; University of Derby (Kluwer, 2016-09-02)A topic of discourse for over half a century, the Societas Europaea (the European Company) has much to offer. Notwithstanding its merits, this supranational corporate form has attracted much criticism. One of the major issues that has emerged on a recurrent basis is the question of the functional worth of this structure. In this context a discourse has ensued about its advantages, and disadvantages from the perspective of its intended end-user. This paper will discuss the pro-business aspects of this entity (Part 2) before giving due consideration to its structural and functional deficits (Part 3), ending with suggestions for reform (Part 4).
