Call For Papers: Beyond Insurance –The Wider Angle Viewpoint

The Editorial Board of the AIDA Europe Research Series on Insurance Law and Regulation hereby issues an invitation for the submission of academic papers on beyond insurance – the wider angle viewpoint.

What do you get when you mix Insurance Academics and Professionals from different countries and cultures and add to this disruptions such as technology and regulations? Simply, the desire to innovate, modernise and strategize to arrive at a so called new acceptable norm which we call the 21 st century insurance.

Unlike their predecessors, 21 st century insurers have a growing impact on cross-sector service provision by making available to their clients a wealth of expert knowledge and experience in Big Data analytics. The purpose of the book is to delve into the transition of insurers from suppliers of products consisting of risk coverage and/or investment opportunities to the provision of a variety of different services and ultimately to the provisions of solutions, by partnering with their clients so as to prevent failure, optimize their clients’ operations and help them excel in their various economic sectors.

Eligible topics

We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers. We invite academics (including Ph.D. students) and sector practitioners to submit their manuscripts on topics exploring particular aspects of this new trend as well as papers which carry out wider analyses leading to a more systematic understanding of the industry’s new socio-economic role. Insights on a broad spectrum of themes are welcome. Papers can approach the issues from a national, transnational, international or comparative perspective. Although the series has a predominant legal focus, in this volume we welcome papers on law, economics, risk management, actuarial sciences, social sciences, humanities and any other perspectives that might be relevant to the discussion. We strongly encourage submissions of multi or interdisciplinary research, as reflected by the different scientific backgrounds of the two co-editors.

AIDA EUROPE (International Association of Insurance Law) was established in 2007 as a non-profit organization with the aim of promoting, either directly or through its members, the development of insurance and related law. AIDA Europe organizes conferences, which offer a platform for an open and solution minded dialogue on key developments in the area of insurance, reinsurance and related law also supporting its members in their respective endeavours. Conferences are open to all stakeholders and are indeed attracting representatives from all areas such as the insurance sector, academia, private practice, regulatory authorities or the law making. AIDA Europe also maintains a keen focus on supporting the development of young academic talents by sponsoring academic work and by inviting young academics to its conferences. AIDA Europe Conferences represent a unique platform as they are also combined with the working meetings of the AIDA Working Parties.
