Article Type: Editorial From: International Journal of Law and Management, Volume 54, Issue 6
In this final issue of 2012, there are four articles. One is the final part of Bijan Bibabad who sends us, from Iran, the final part of his work on diplomacy from a Sufi perspective. Bijan has probably the unique distinction of having work published in five of the six issues of Volume 54. It is suggested that we are all rather more knowledgeable about the Sufi perspective on many matters than we were a year ago. Heartfelt thanks go to him for his painstaking work and his attempt to make things intelligible to a largely new community of readers.
Alexander Bělohlávek and Filip Černý of the Czech Republic write about the law applicable to claims asserted in international investment disputes. This article primarily concerns research on the resolution of international investment disputes, with a particular focus on the nature of the law applicable to the merits of a dispute, especially on the ICSID platform. As ever, there is considerable interest from managers and lawyers in this sort of work and the transnational nature speaks volumes for the ongoing assertion made by the journal – that there is so much each nation can learn from others.
Li Sun from Indiana offers us further evidence on the association between corporate social responsibility and financial performance. This paper extends Cochran and Wood (1984) by using a larger and more recent sample to examine the association between corporate social responsibility and financial performance of a firm. It contributes to the CSR literature.
Finally, we have “Pay for luck: new evidences from the institutional determinants of CEOs’ compensation”, which is by Habib Jouber and Hamadi Fakhfakh of the University of Sfax in Tunisia.
And so, another year and another volume of the journal comes to an end. As ever, it is hoped all articles offer stimulating and thought provoking reading and we commend them to you.
