Reducing agency costs is the principal problem of corporate governance. Although the scope and stringency of the laws and rules on eliminating agency costs are expanding, there is still need for the understanding of the supervision and enforcement of these rules. Enforcement can take the forms of public and/or private. With dispersed and concentrated ownership patterns, the relevance of public and private enforcement mechanism may differ; due to the appearance of agency problems unlikely.
The purpose of this paper is to provide a conceptual analysis on corporate governance strategies involving the exercise of control rights, the appointment of independent directors, auditing, and disclosure. This paper will also include a guideline on the enforcement mechanism in Turkey and the ways in which they are used to control the agency problems; between owners and managers, controlling shareholders and non-controlling shareholders or creditors.
