Impact of Technological Revolution, Financial Shocks and Geopolitical Conflicts on Financial Regulation

The 24th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting

1-2 June 2023, Prague, Czech Republic

Website: https://convention.vse.cz/

Registration & Submission: https://convention.vse.cz/#registration

The Faculty of Finance and Accounting of Prague University of Economics and Business is delighted to host the 24th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting (ACFA 2023). In collaboration with the Emerging Markets Finance and Trade, the special issue on Impact of Technological Revolution, Financial Shocks and Geopolitical Conflicts on Financial Regulation is organized.

Extensive regulation of the financial sector provides new stimulus to the transformation of the financial industry. To appropriately comply with financial regulation, the financial sector needs to adapt the organization of the business, deepen a link between risk management and regulatory requirements, optimize distribution channels, rearrange conditions of supply of credit and stabilize the sources of funding. The technological revolution, shocks in financial markets, and current geopolitical conflicts make the application of financial regulation challenging at the present time. Financial regulation needs to balance the benefits that technological innovations bring to financial participants with related risks to make the financial system more stable and better functioning. New tools and methodological approaches need to be developed to help the financial system to be less vulnerable and more resilient to financial shocks. New prudency actions made by the regulators and financial institutions are needed to cope with the impact of world geopolitical conflicts, unstable political situations, and protectionist measures that could lead to trade wars, damage to international trade relations, and financial instability in a global scale.

The technological revolution, financial shocks, and geopolitical conflicts have not yet been well addressed in the current financial regulation, supervision, and financial stability models. This call for paper encourages high-quality theoretical and empirical contributions that focus on a) new methodological approaches to financial regulation, b) modeling the financial system dynamics under external shocks, c) analysis of sources of financial system vulnerability, d) design of micro and macro-prudential measures on a forward-looking basis, e) organization of financial industry in a new regulatory framework.
