Abstract: The value of independent directors is controversial in corporate governance. On some occasions the boards with a majority of independent directors perform better, while in others, they do not. The purpose of this thesis is to discuss how to make independent directors more effective. This thesis will discuss the elements contributing to their independence and set up a framework in which the directors can maintain their independence and perform better. Meanwhile, China has brought in the concept of independent directors, which has led to the combination of two supervising mechanisms. However, independent directors seem useless in Chinese practice at present. I hope the comments and recommendations in this thesis will help realize the value of independent directors and benefit Chinese corporate reforms.
