Managerial Auditing Journal Call for Papers

Special Issue on ‘Risk Management, Governance and Assurance’

Guest Editors:

Professor Nava Subramaniam, Deakin University, Australia
Assoc. Prof. Peter Carey, Monash University, Australia

The special edition, "Risk Management, Governance and Assurance”, calls for papers on the research and practice of risk management, corporate governance, management control and assurance. Risk management is increasingly viewed integral to corporate governance and organizational management, and is interconnected with various management control processes and functions. Significant investments have been also made by organizations in their corporate governance, risk and control functions in recent years.

The papers selected for this issue should provide readers insight into the various aspects of the governance of risk management, related assurance processes and their impact on organisational outcomes. We are specifically interested in empirical and theoretical contributions from a wide variety of research perspectives and approaches. Papers covering the following and related topics are welcome:

  • The design and implementation of risk management systems and how such systems are integrated with other governance control mechanisms. For example, how prevalent is enterprise risk management as opposed to traditional, silo-based risk management systems, and what are the outcomes of more sophisticated or advanced risk management and corporate governance systems.
  • The role of regulation and its impact on risk management behaviour both at the organizational and individual levels. Some of the issues addressed may include whether management control design and disclosure policies minimize dysfunctional behaviour and foster transparency, and accountability, leading to relevant and reliable reporting and whether organizational stakeholders are risk literate and their ability to understand the information provided by risk reports.
  • The role of external and internal auditors in complementing and supporting risk management and corporate governance, and the implications of that role for auditor independence and audit quality.
  • The impact of changing environmental and economic conditions such as climate change, the 2008 global credit crisis and economic downturn on risk management and corporate governance.
