The British Journal of Management (BJM) will publish a special issue dedicated to the topic "Corporate governance in extreme institutional environments" in 2021. We welcome theoretical, conceptual, review, comparative as well as empirical contributions that explore corporate governance systems in extreme cultural, political and legal environments. With this special issue, we hope to offer a selection of studies from different disciplines as well as interdisciplinary research that will help reflect on and provide recommendations for how governance structures around the world should support the next technological revolution in an equitable, inclusive and sustainable way and to protect future generations. In particular, the special issue aims to advance our thinking on corporate governance by moving beyond the traditional conceptual and methodological approaches associated with the dominance of agency theory in corporate governance research, and to explore new perspectives that will allow us to respond more effectively to contemporary corporate governance challenges at a global level. We therefore invite contributions adopting a variety of theoretical, conceptual and methodological approaches, and addressing a range of organisational and geographical contexts. We also aim to contribute to a critical appraisal of the strengths, weaknesses and consequences of the current set of rules, standards and institutions in light of the increased interconnections of global risks on the one hand, and the costs of uncoordinated responses of national governments on the other.
