theoretical and empirical papers dealing with country risk, foreign direct investment
and their interactions.
Specific areas of interest include:
Country risk, its components, determinants and measurement
Influence of country risk on foreign direct investment
Role of foreign direct investment in providing financial stability and preventing
financial crises
Invited speakers are e.g. Ephraim Clark, Marcel Fratzscher, Graciela Kaminsky, Alexander Kockerbeck, Bert Scholtens
Selected papers will be published in a special volume of Frontiers in Finance and
Interested scholars should send a completed paper (or a detailed abstract) as well as
full contact details until December 1st, 2007, to:
