The project comprises an edited collection of contributions from key note speakers and selective academic presenters at the 6th International Risk Management Conference – IRMC 2013, which was hosted by the Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. The IRMC 2013 conference brought together leading experts and professionals from various academic disciplines to discuss risk management under the general theme: Enduring Financial Stability: Contemporary Challenges for Risk Management and Governance. This theme reflected the cross-disciplinary perspective of the conference that as something quite unique and new welcomed papers from the fields of finance, economics and strategic management for fruitful exchanges. This particular conference introduced a special topic: Contemporary Risk Management Challenges – Managing Risk in an Unstable Environment to emphasize the important managerial aspects of the complex and multifaceted risk management challenge. This collection of articles, therefore, comprises contributions responding to this call for inquiry reintroducing central aspects of 'management' in risk management that hitherto have been somewhat overlooked or subdued. Contemporary Challenges in Risk Management focuses on two central aspects of the risk managing process, namely (1) how managers (can and do) assess developments in the external risk environment and deal with them, and (2) analysing the effects of risk management and different managerial approaches. The articles represent state of the art academic analyses and research contributions.
