Best Paper Prize for Research that Supports the Implementation of the One Planet Sovereign Wealth Fund Framework

Best Paper Prize for Research that Supports Central Banks and Financial Regulators to Green the Financial System

At the time of writing, we have already received a large number of papers. However, we want to maximize the opportunity for scholars to be considered for these new prizes. We therefore announced a deadline extension to Monday 15th April 2019.
