On 30th March 2012, Sharon Oded received his PhD with the distinction Cum Laude for his thesis entitled "Inducing Corporate Proactive Compliance: Liability Controls & Corporate Monitors". Sharon's supervisor was Prof. Dr. Michael Faure.
Awarding a Cum Laude is a rare event. It is provided on basis of the thesis – the research has to be excellent, contributing new insights in the scientific discipline concerned – and the defence has to be very good as well.
In his PhD research Sharon focused on corporate internal enforcement systems. The research is aimed at exploring a welfare-enhancing integration of internal enforcement programs in business corporations into the general enforcement policy.
