Guest Editor:
Eleonora Pierucci, University of Basilicata, Italy

Preference will be given to papers on international finance, risk management and risk insurance at a micro level, as well as to papers in the field of econometrics of risk. All methodological frameworks are welcomed (frequentist, Bayesian, behavioural), but the papers should have dominant empirical content.
