Main Article Content



The interest of countries and international institutions in corporate governance and its formulation according to legislative or guidance methods is a practical embodiment of the theory of corporate governance. These principles align with the legal rules that govern commercial companies, complementing rather than conflicting with them. This synergy has transformed governance into an effective system aimed at enhancing the protection of all stakeholders related to the company.  This study aims to explore the characteristics of corporate governance within the legal framework governing commercial companies in Algerian legislation. The assessment will focus on their alignment and suitability for implementation in consideration of internationally desired corporate governance principles.
