In this special issue of Research in Finance, editors Rita Biswas and Michael Michaelides compile eleven papers, five of which were selected from the II International Conference on Economics and Finance (ICEF-II) in Bengaluru, India. This volume focuses on a gamut of topics ranging from monetary policy to corporate governance in emerging economies. More specifically, it presents papers on the role of board characteristics and sub-committees on firm performance, the impact of US quantitative easing on countries like India and China, public-private partnerships in infrastructure projects in India, and multinational banking evolution in Nigeria and India. In order to advance the field of international economics and finance, it is necessary to question conventional practice and research approach. Incorporating analysis of classical theories of international finance and economics, the papers in this volume present new innovative theories that seek to do just that. They are essential reading for researchers interested in development economics and emerging finance.
