Call #6 - Financial Stability Working Group

Ten years after the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, economists continue involving in a heated debate, trying to understand GFC’s main causes and its consequences for the future. Moreover, in light of recent adverse developments such as recent EME financial instability and FX crises (Turkey, Argentina), the question financial stability has become one of the most important challenges faced by the central bankers.

Our working group aims at opening space to a plurality of views, including the ones that look beyond conventional economic paradigms. In this context, the session’s primary focus is on a range of issues such as lessons learned from the crisis, current developments in financial markets, and future challenges for the financial sector, especially those linked to changes in regulatory frameworks in search for a more stable global financial system.

The Working Group on Financial Stability invites young researchers to submit their abstracts in one of the (but not limited to) following topics:

  • Financial System (In)stability: Basel III and policy response to crises ¿riskier or safer?
  • Ten years of the Global Financial Crises: what have we learned? (*)
  • Global Liquidity
  • Shadow banking and Regulation: too big to change?
  • Financialization
  • Fintech/ Cryptocurrencies and Financial Innovation
  • Financial inclusion and inequalities (gender, race)

(*) refers to sessions joint with economic history
