Special Issue "Political Risk in Financial Markets"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 September 2021.
Interests: emerging markets; frontier markets; political risk; country risk; financial integration; financial development
The topic of political risk and uncertainty is becoming increasingly important in the context of international financial markets. The concept of political risk encompasses many facets, such as political leadership, quality of bureaucracy, corruption in government, law and order tradition, and military in politics, among others. The political risk was traditionally considered as a country-specific characteristic of emerging markets, but due to increased liberalization, globalization, and integration of financial markets, it has become a relevant issue for all international investors, especially in terms of portfolio management. Furthermore, geopolitical risk has received significant attention from investors in the last two decades, following increasing geopolitical uncertainty associated with terroristic attacks, wars, and tensions between states.
This Special Issue focuses on the broader theme of “Political Risk in Financial Markets” and aims to include novel research on the impact of political risk, geopolitical risk, and country risk on the financial markets. Papers will be considered for inclusion in the following topic areas (but not be limited to only those topics):
- Political risk and stock pricing;
- Political uncertainty;
- Geopolitical risk in financial markets;
- Impact of international political crises on financial integration;
- Role of political risk in government bond markets;
- Political risk in emerging financial markets;
- Hedging geopolitical risk.
