Shareholders have specific rights, duties, and responsibilities relative to their shareholding company and other stakeholders. This study focuses on the responsibility of individual shareholders and the shareholders' meeting. The prevailing view is that shareholders inherently represent their own interests. But how and to what extent is this assumption limited? This dissertation identifies and describes the relevant circumstances, namely: the size of the share, the power of the shareholder, the background of the shareholder, the nature of the company, the company's current situation, the nature of the governing legislation, and the decision to be made. It also describes the possibility for others to 'correct' the shareholder's behaviour.
