International Financial Integration in a Changing Policy Context - The End of an Era?

1-2 March 2018

Global Financial Integration has faced major changes and challenges since the 2008-09 global financial crisis. The crisis was followed by a persistent drop in capital flows among advanced economies. In Europe, sharp current account adjustments took place in countries with large deficits, but large surpluses did not correct. Monetary policy in advanced economies experimented with unconventional tools to counter the economic slump and avoid deflation, raising questions about the timing and implementation of policy normalisation, and about the impact of asynchronous moves by monetary authorities on financial flows, current accounts and exchange rates. Regulatory reform has been reshaping international finance since the crisis (e.g. Basel III-IV, EU banking union, macro-prudential regulations, tax harmonization of offshore finances,...) with the effect of strengthening capital positions of financial institutions, but also with implications for credit growth and financial integration. Finally, globalisation is increasingly blamed for limiting national sovereignty on economic matters; protectionist attitudes among voters and political movements are on the rise, and already shape the agenda of a number of governments in advanced economies. 

The conference will focus on the state of play with global imbalances, exchange rate developments, and financial integration, with a view to assess challenges from a forward-looking perspective.
