Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

International financial flows such as foreign direct investment, workers’ remittances, and Official Development Assistance (ODA) play a significant role in developing countries. Since the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the economies of most countries, such international financial flows have become increasingly important for developing ones given their fragile institutions and financial constraints. For this Special Issue of Journal of Risk and Financial Management, we welcome submissions on any topic related to international financial flows and economic growth. Our purpose is to collect high-quality recent research on different problems related to international financial flows, including research pertaining to, but not limited to, foreign direct investment, remittances, official development assistance or foreign aid, and economic growth.

This Special Issue welcomes conceptual papers (of around 3000 words), as well as full-length articles on various topics that pertain to international trade and finance. Both empirical and theoretical papers will be considered.
