Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Before the COVID-19 crisis there was a relatively long period of economic stability and prosperity. Countries and established trading blocs more or less aspired to reach some stage of sustainable development. With the abrupt arrival of COVID-19, the situation has changed sharply and unexpectedly. Measured mainly through the protection of their inhabitants, some countries reacted to this shock more successfully than others. There is no doubt that the impact of COVID-19 will be damaging for economies, and therefore a push for innovative solutions to get out from the slowdown is anticipated.

In this Special Issue, we want to encourage scholars to look into problems of society from different, not only economic, perspectives. We want to explore the damaging effect of COVID-19 on economies, companies, municipalities (acting under fiscal constraints of debt capacity), and sectors. Additionally, we want to explore paths to recovery and the new opportunities that this crisis brings to our (as we believed) already very developed civilization.

This Issue is especially interested in the topic of financial stability in developed and emerging economies. The questions of following sustainable goals as announced in 2015 and the regime of crisis and recovery in SMEs and big multinationals are also of our concern. Furthermore, we are interested in information disclosures of firms and subsequent related market reactions.

We invite authors to contribute original research articles in theory and practice. All submissions must contain original unpublished work not being considered for publication elsewhere. Submissions are also open to scholars and participants of the conference IFRS Global Rules and Local Use—Beyond the Numbers 2020 organized jointly by the Metropolitan University Prague and the Anglo-American University in Prague.
