Call for Papers: "Corporate Governance in Times of Disruption"

Recent corporate governance debates have shown that companies face several disruptions. The Corona crisis has severe consequences for firms. Environmental factors, such as climate change, pollution, resource management, and energy consumption, have become critical to corporate decisions. The digital transformation generates opportunities for firms to monetize new technologies, but also threats, for stakeholders, including employees, customers, and society at large, such as unemployment and the misuse of personal data. Climate goals that have not been reached and recent bankruptcies due to missed digital transformations indicate that not all corporate governance (CG) actors, such as board members, investors, and managers, are prepared to cope with these environmental and digital disruptions.

These disruptions put new pressure on corporate governance actors in terms of formulating pro-active strategies to remain competitive. Increased demands for corporate sustainability also increases the risks of corporate fraud, as we have seen in the case of Volkswagen’s attempt to mask the emissions of their cars. Therefore, corporate governance mechanisms and practices must evolve to respond to these challenges. Against this background, the theme of this year’s conference is “Corporate Governance in Times of Disruption.” Therefore, we specifically welcome submissions related to the role of corporate governance in the fast-changing landscape of pandemic, environmental, and digital risks, that is, we would encourage submitting on one of the following themes:

  • Do we need new types of board members and executives to tackle these days’ disruption?
  • Do we need different compensation models to align executives’ and stakeholders’ interests in times of disruption?
  • Which types of owners are best prepared to maneuver their investments through times of disruption?
  • Are there optimal governance bundles to best deal with disruption?

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2021

Call for Papers: "Corporate Governance Mechanisms in light of the COVID-19 Crisis: How Financial Information and Regulation, Managerial Decision-Making, and Policy Intervention Can Shape the Economic Recovery"

Call for Papers Corporate Governance: An International Review 

The ongoing uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic is spurring different behaviors and responses by various economic actors. Therefore, we see the following questions as being particularly relevant and timely from an empirical standpoint:

  1. What are the managerial (and workers-related)implications in terms of compensation, incentives, and (mis-)alignment with other corporate and social stakeholders?
  2. How do organizations respond in terms of capital structure, investments and accounting policies (e.g., in the financial industry some banks are increasing provisioning of future losses whereas others are recording all-time high profit)?
  3. How do policy makers like securities regulators (e.g., SEC), accounting standard setting bodies (e.g., IASB, FASB), national governments and supranational entities (e.g., European Banking Authority) enact, suspend and review policies and rules to safeguard the economic systems without generating too much moral hazard and ineffective public spending?
  4. How is the balance of power among governments, regulators, standard set- ters, and the various stakeholders (preparers, auditors, and users) impacted and what are the effects of shifts in that balance on financial reporting and the decision-usefulness of the information?
  5. What is the role of ESG strategies in responding to the COVID-19? How do corporations balance purpose and profits during the crisis? Which responsible best practices in these unprecedented times are value creating? How have stock markets reacted to the way companies deal with trade-off?
  6. Has the disclosure of risk factors changed in the post-COVID-19? How do these changes manifest? And how do various stakeholders use them? Are firms more responsive to tail-risk post-crisis and is this reflected in disclo- sures?

Submission Deadline: August 1, 2021
