Due to its multidisciplinary nature, corporate insolvency has been the subject of an increasing number of studies. However, beyond the question of corporate bankruptcy prediction, other issues are at stake. Indeed, bankruptcy is not only characterized by its economic, financial, and legal dimensions, but also by social and psychological components that are still rarely explored.
All contributions (quantitative or qualitative) on the theme of failure and survival of SMEs and entrepreneurs can be proposed, with a focus on the following non-exhaustive list:
- Identifying the determinants of bankruptcy / business difficulties;
- Failure and financial structure;
- Relationship between governance, mamagement and failure;
- Survival and support;
- Prevention of business difficulties;
- Failure after the transmission of firm ;
- Costs and consequences of failure;
- Human resources policies and business risk;
- Relationships between the characteristics of the CEO and the failure of SMEs;
- SME bankruptcy case studies (economic and/or legal views);
- Psychology of the contractor during the liquidation process.
