Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the life and non-life insurance sectors have been subjected to consistent and complex economic pressures from the financial world, but more recently from the public health sector. Either the negative effects of the financial crisis that began in 2008 had not been well erased within national economies, when the COVID-19 pandemic emerged. This pandemic has again destabilized the economic, social, institutional, and financial environments worldwide.

Contractions from the labour markets, inflationary environments, a significant rise of the energy prices, but also the climate risks are important ingredients of the challenges of the present-day world, which, however, are announced to be persistent in the years to come. The insurance & reinsurance sector is, in general, an important risk absorber for any economy, but in the time of crisis, its utility certainly is rising. Digitalization, reliable environmental policies, creating a consistent institutional environment and supportive for the development of the private sector, unfailing economic growth solutions are possible to support the insurance sector in an international context.

Authors are invited to submit papers that address these new aspects, highlighting the challenges that this economic sector has faced, is facing and will face, also highlighting what are the possible changes in the world of risk management, in line with the perspectives of the upcoming decade.
