Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays, we note many events that have a significant impact on economic phenomena. An example is the impact of COVID-19 on the functioning of the global economy and stock exchanges.

Although the concept of event study has been known for about 50 years (a first paper using an event study in “today’s form” was written in 1969 by Fama, Fisher, Jensen and Roll), and it is still present in world literature. It has evolved and constantly improved as well as been  used to analyse the impact of more and more events.

We expect publications of a theoretical and empirical nature, which will be an important contribution to the development of literature on this issue. The topics covered in this Special Issue will include (but are not limited to) the following areas: classic event study, intraday event study, short-term event study, long-run event study, volume event study, volatility event study, reverse event study, price reaction on negative and positive events, applications for preparing data to conduct event study, characteristics of data sources for an event study, and the outliers problem in event study. We expect publications from the related topics to use event study in finance, economy, politics, sport and many other fields where this methodology was used or will be used for the first time.

This study aims to investigate the unsettled issue of the relationship between CEO duality and a firm’s value through the perspective of investors’ reaction to news which mention apical directors with a single role and Board Chair CEOs. With a unique and hand-collected database of 60,805 newspaper articles, text-analysis, event-study and regression analysis methodologies were applied to capture news sentiment and study the direction and the magnitude of the stock market reaction. Results reveal that news mentioning Board Chair CEOs are negatively processed by investors, revealing a negative perception by investors about CEO duality. The study provides empirical support for the agency theory, in contrast to the stewardship theory, in the interpretation of CEO duality. It also proposes the methodology of systematically quantifying language to explore corporate governance issues and their link with financial markets. Full article

The knowledge, attitudes and perceptions of the high school students on Croatia’s European Union (EU) accession event were omitted in numerous public opinion polls conducted since the 2013 accession. Therefore, the paper shows key benefits of Croatia’s EU accession and the recent attitudes of high school students about the meaning of this event for their future lives. Research methods include desktop analysis regarding previous researches of the population attitudes and a quantitative survey conducted in January 2017 on a sample of a total of 1944 school graduates who were interviewed on issues of knowledge, perception and attitude to the event of Croatia’s entrance and membership in the EU. The results point out that although Croatia acquires significant benefits from the EU accession, the very event is not recognized as being the key one by high school students. Considering that in many cases the youth opinion is the best indicator of overall social problems and considering the future programs and obligations as well as the role expected from the youth in implementation of these programs, the research findings on the perception of the event of Croatia’s accession to the EU are a field within which future policy activities are envisaged.
