It is already clear that the COVID-19 pandemic will have dire economic consequences, and collective thought is being applied to what policies can better ensure societies’ resilience and their quick and dynamic recovery once the crisis is over. Corporate governance scholars can also help policymakers devise sound and effective policies for this purpose.

Topics included, but were not limited to:
· Corporate social responsibility in war-like times
