A release of corporate governance conference proceedings

We would like to present the conference proceedings titled “New challenges in corporate governance: Theory and practice”.

The aim of the conference was to move the field closer to a global theory by advancing our understanding of corporate governance, which combines insights from the literature on firm governance bundles with insights from the national governance systems literature, investigating new perspectives and challenges for corporate governance and outlining possible scenarios of its development. Therefore, we encouraged governance scholars to analyse these issues both theoretically and empirically in the context of corporate governance.

A total of 110 co-authors (representing 15 countries such as the USA, Australia, the UK, Italy, France, Sweden, Portugal, China, Lebanon, Mexico, etc.) contributed to the conference proceedings. Corporate governance as an issue to research has been considered by authors from the most relevant and up-to-date aspects. The conference papers cover such topics as general corporate governance, board of directors, artificial intelligence, auditing, firm’s profitability, data analytics, financial reporting, corporate social and environmental responsibility, earnings management, Islamic corporate governance model, cash flow management, etc.

All conference papers are available here.

The next Virtus conference is scheduled to be held in Lisbon, Portugal (May 7, 2020). More details could be found here.
