It is already clear that the COVID-19 pandemic will have dire economic consequences, and collective thought is being applied to what policies can better ensure societies’ resilience and their quick and dynamic recovery once the crisis is over. Corporate governance scholars can help devise sound and effective policies for this purpose.

  • Corporate social responsibility in war-like times
  • Corporate governance digitalization
  • The role of institutional investors and stewardship
  • Takeover defences and M&A trends
  • Bond markets and bankruptcy
  • Corporate purpose in times of crisis
  • The governance implications of emergency laws and government bailouts
  • Securities regulation (disclosure, short-selling bans, etc.)
  • ESG and Impact investing
  • Systemic risk and financial stability following exogenous shocks
