Call for Research Proposals & Papers

The mission of PRMIA is to promote, develop and share professional risk management practices globally. PRMIA's scholastic arm, the PRMIA Institute, seeks to advance best practices globally through a series of detailed publications on areas of emerging interest to risk professionals working in all areas of financial services. PRMIA Institute seeks the submission of high-quality papers relating to professional risk management for publication in forthcoming anthologies. All accepted papers will be made available to Sustaining Members via the Institute’s portal.

Topics of particular interest include:

  • Public Debt in a post-COVID World: What are the potential impacts of the buildup of government debt related to COVID-19 responses?
  • Post Brexit: Brexit has happened... from a risk management view, what happened and what happens next?
  • Crypto Currencies: The potential for such currencies to be more widely adopted and the potential impact on existing reserve currencies?
  • Third Party / Outsourcing Risk, including the methods and tools available to support businesses to manage the related risks.
  • Conduct Risk, including methods to allow identification and assessment of this risk, approaches to allow risk professionals to help with the oversight of this and allow them to protect consumers of financial services.
  • Risk Culture: Have responses over the last decade been successful? Also papers related to this topic in emergent economies.
