International financial and capital markets have grown significantly over the last decade and have been fully opened to the wind of globalization. In this newly formed globalized financial environment, the analysis of corporations, financial institutions and international markets requires the employment of multinational and interdisciplinary approaches. Economic agents interact in national and global markets making investment decisions whose effects diffuse across national borders. The analysis of these interactions and the investigation of the financial systems in nations in different stages of development are key drivers for the advancement of our knowledge of finance.

In this context, the Multinational Finance Journal (MFJ) makes a specific contribution by publishing research investigating phenomena related to the integration and interaction of national financial systems at the micro- and macro-finance levels and by disseminating research originating from countries with financial markets in different stages of development and with diverse institutional backgrounds.

In particular, MFJ publishes original, high-quality refereed theoretical and empirical articles across all the major fields of finance and economics placing emphasis on the internationality of the research. The purpose of MFJ is to publish original articles dealing with issues that are relevant to the study and practice of finance and economics in a global context. The Editorial Board welcomes articles from a broad range of economic and financial topics dealing, among others, with capital markets, financial institutions, and corporate finance and governance, as well as work investigating the effects of differences in institutional, cultural and regulatory frameworks on agents’ economic and financial decisions.

V-Dem – Global Standards, Local Knowledge
Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) is a new approach to conceptualization and measurement of democracy. It is one of the largest ever social science data collection programs. V-Dem is collecting data on 400+ indicators of various aspects of democracy tied to the core of electoral democracy as well as six varying properties: liberal, majoritarian, consensual, participatory, deliberative and egalitarian dimensions of democracy. The resulting database makes possible both highly detailed, nuanced analysis of virtually all aspects of democracy in a country, and quick, summary comparisons between countries based on aggregated indices for varieties of democracy.

V-Dem produces this Working Paper Series to disseminate results from the newly developed measures of components, principles, and varieties of democracy and their determinants. The research explores, for instance, exogenous and endogenous factors of democratization, effects of democracy and democratization, and the development of different components of democracy at the national level as well as across sub-national levels.
