Discusses the unusual and problematic form that shareholder activism has traditionally taken in Japan—professional disturbers of shareholders meetings, or ‘sokaiya’. Again we see the impact of institutions on behaviour, as the workings of the sokaiya are directly linked to the quality of corporate information disclosure in Japan, a function of the institutional environment in which Japanese firms operate.
