Special Issue "Corporate Social Responsibilities"
A special issue of International Journal of Financial Studies (ISSN 2227-7072).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 May 2021).
The growing significance of CSR as a phenomenon within financial economics has raised a fundamental question: does CSR enhance shareholder value or is it an agency cost enjoyed by a firm’s top executives at the expense of stockholders? While a number of studies have examined this question from different perspectives, the evidence continues to be conflicting in nature. In this Special Issue of the International Journal of Financial Studies, we investigate the agency cost and the value-enhancing perspectives of CSR. In particular, we invite papers that focus on the implications of different corporate governance mechanisms on corporate social responsibility. These mechanisms include, but are not limited to:
- Board monitoring
- Executive compensation and incentive
- Financial analyst
- Institutional ownership
- Accounting and auditing
- Cultural environment
- Law and regulations
