Finance in the 21st Century

YSI workshop @ Rethinking Finance Oslo 

Apr 12–14, 2018 | 9:00 – 18:00 Download .ics

Oslo, Norway | Norwegian Business School BI

The INET YSI Financial Stability working group (WG) is organising a workshop as part of the Rethinking Finance Conference in Oslo at the Norwegian Business School BI on April 14th, 2018.

                             Call for Papers (Financial Stability WG)

Since the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, economists have been animated to look beyond causes and explanations for the crash than those offered by standard textbook economics. How has thinking over the web of financial interrelations, institutions and activities, regulatory measures, market efficiency, global liquidity and the role of the state in finance developed? This conference offers a forum for alternatives to mainstream economic paradigms, discussion and an exchange of ideas on lessons learned from the crisis.

On behalf of the YSI Working Group on Financial Stability, we welcome contributions by young researchers who wish to present their work in the working group. The contributions should be in the form a brief abstract (100-200 words) and be related to following fields (but not limited to):

•    Financial System and systemic risk;

•    Financial market regulation;

•    Shadow banking system and global money;

•    Finance and sustainability;

•    Financing for development and financial innovations;

•    Responsible and Inclusive Financing.

Selected young scholars will be able to present their work to other members of our community. Limited travel support and accommodation will be offered. The deadline for submitting the abstracts and short statements is February 10th, 2018. Successful candidates will be contacted until the end of February. 

Abstract submissions closed
