Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive platform for researchers, industry professionals, and policymakers to contribute their insights and expertise concerning risk governance within the finance and insurance sectors.

In recent years, the finance and insurance industry has faced numerous challenges related to risk management and governance. Rapid technological advancements, evolving regulatory frameworks, increasing cyber threats, and the emergence of new financial instruments have introduced complexities that demand innovative risk governance approaches. This Special Issue intends to address these challenges and explore cutting-edge research and practical strategies that enhance risk governance practices in the sector.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit original research articles, case studies, and critical review papers that shed light on various aspects of risk governance in the finance and insurance industry. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Risk identification, assessment, and mitigation strategies in financial institutions;
  • Regulatory frameworks and their impact on risk governance in the finance and insurance industry;
  • Risk culture and organizational behavior within financial and insurance institutions;
  • Emerging technologies and their role in risk governance (e.g., artificial intelligence, blockchain);
  • Cyber risk management and cybersecurity in the finance and insurance sectors;
  • The role of big data analytics and predictive modeling in risk governance;
  • Corporate governance and risk management in financial institutions;
  • Ethical considerations in risk governance practices;
  • Risk governance challenges in emerging markets and developing economies;
  • Case studies and best practices in risk governance within the finance and insurance industry.

How does a board of directors respond to stringent transnational regulations on corporate governance? We explore this question in a case study that includes interviews with key governance actors of a bank dealing with regulatory changes in the European Union (EU) initiated in 2010 in response to the financial crisis of 2007–2008. Our findings suggest that transnational regulations introduced a conflicting prescription to the directors, who were caught between two needs: existing local governance practices and transnational regulatory compliance. Contributing to the international corporate governance research, our findings corroborate the resistance to transnational regulations and the distrust attributable to boards of directors’ role struggles and the invasive accountability mechanisms introduced by such regulations. We, therefore, contribute to the ongoing discussion on how the conflicting layers of corporate governance—local versus global—and how the discontinuities between competing existing practices and the prescriptions of transnational regulations can provoke micro-resistance.
