Special Issue "Contemporary Issues in Corporate Governance and Firm Performance"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2022.
Interests: corporate finance and governance; financial and commodities markets; international finance; fund performance
Over the past 20 years, we have seen a rapid growth in our knowledge of how corporate governance impacts firm performance, both in loacl and international settings. This growth has resulted in attention being paid to governance features that had previously been overlooked such as cultural diversity of the board, social capital of directors, and impact of international institutional investors. While considerable research has been done, and a vast array of governance mechanisms and features have been studied, there is much still to be explored. This is compounded by the rapidly changing ways that firms adopt new governance arrangements. In this special issue, we seek papers addressing how firms and their performance is affected by a broad range of governance mechanisms and features. We invite papers on a range of topics including but limited to:
- Theories of Corporate Governance
- The composition and diversity of the board of directors including human and social capital, skills, and experiences
- Shareholders vs Stakeholders
- Executive Compensation Schemes
- Institutional and managerial ownerships including how the nature of the institution impacts corporate governance, i.e., passive vs active funds, impact investors, etc.
- Firm Disclosure and Reporting including studies based on textual analysis of narrative disclosures
