New burning topics for research in regulation and governance

Editorial team and Publisher of the Journal of Governance and Regulation aimed to outline the most perspective fields of research in regulation and governance which will be demanded by the scholars worldwide. We asked the Advisory Board members of the journal to provide their point of view.

In this material we publish recommendations of Prof. Carine Girard, representing Audencia Business School in France.

The first area outlined by Prof. Girard is that of the impact of the digital revolution (blockchain, Decentralized autonomous Organization and crowdfunding platforms; etc) on corporate governance (organizational level) and regulation (institutional level).

The second area which may be in focus of researchers worldwide in the nearest time is a meta-analysis of the emergence of alternative corporate governance systems such as Benefit corporations and their effect on law in different institutional contexts.

The last area to pay attention to is minority shareholder rights taking into account the fact that the future shareholder is essentially an online user.

With regard to these recommendations we’ve added several more topics to the list of existing research topic of the Journal of Governance and Regulation. We hope that these recommendations will be of help to those authors who seek a promising topic for research in the field of regulation and governance.
