The Parallel Pressures of Sustainable Finance

We are inviting authors to submit unpublished research papers that address this year’s conference theme. Submissions on emerging issues of sustainable finance such as biodiversity finance, social finance, and fresh perspectives in accounting, monetary policy, and regulation are particularly welcome.

Submitted papers will be considered through an editorial review process. Authors of accepted contributions will be able to present their findings at the Annual Symposium. The best contributions will also be nominated for submission to a Special Issue of the Journal of Sustainable Finance and Investment (JSFI).

Papers must be submitted to by July 1, 2022.
