The WP series editors will generally apply a broad definition of corporate governance and also include papers on the interface between corporate governance and other areas, or papers of which only a part touches on corporate governance. However, papers in other areas whose relevance for corporate governance is only indirect or methodological will not be included. Examples of papers that will be accepted include works:
- covering topics of financial regulation that have an impact on how firms are, or should be, governed/managed/owned;
dealing with the financial crisis, when implications can be drawn on how financial institutions are, or should be, governed/managed/owned.
Examples of papers in other areas whose relevance for corporate governance is only indirect or methodological include:
- contributions to banking and financial institutions that do not address governance issues;
macroeconomic discussions of the financial crisis, sovereign debt markets or related phenomena that do not explicitly address the governance of firms or financial intermediaries.
