Shareholder activism is gaining popularity across the globe especially in today's context where the option of giving up and selling shares to exit the company has become obsolete. Hence, the purpose of this research is two-fold, firstly to assess the concept of shareholder activism under the Mauritian Companies Act 2001 which sets out tools for investors to make the management of a company aware of their concerns and to dynamically participate in the decision-making process. Secondly, this study aims at investigating the extent to which the minority shareholders of companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius adopt and make use of the various tools of activism. Methodology To achieve these objectives, this study will adopt the qualitative and quantitative research methods. Primary data will be collected by conducting a survey on directors of listed companies to figure out the extent of shareholder activism implemented by the minority investors while secondary data will be collected through a qualitative legal, document and content analysis to scrutinise regulatory provisions and existing literature on the researched topic.
