Organizers: Fabio Castiglionesi, Alessandro Gavazza, Vasso Ioannidou, Thorsten Lehnert, David Martinez-Miera and Louis Raes
Keynote Speaker: Bruno Biais (HEC Paris and CEPR)

The banking sector is undergoing rapid technological change. This creates opportunities as well as challenges for the banks, and potentially has implications for financial stability and financial regulation. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers in different fields of finance and economics to discuss current issues in banking, financial stability, and financial regulation. We are inviting high quality submissions of both theoretical and empirical nature on micro- and macroeconomic aspects of financial intermediation. Topics could include, but are not limited to:

Technological advances and access to credit;

Changing business models of banks and financial stability;

Evolving competition in the financial sector;

The adequacy of micro and macro-prudential policies to safeguard financial stability;

The resolution of failed banks and too-big-to-fail (TBTF);

The transmission of monetary policy;

Information production and disclosure (e.g., stress tests, accounting statements) and its impact on market discipline and financial stability;

Corporate governance at financial institutions;

The internationalization of the banking sector.


Papers should be submitted electronically to [email protected] along with your affiliation and email address. Authors of accepted papers will be contacted by March 1st, 2020. Economy class travel and accommodation for invited participants will be covered.


The conference will be held at Tilburg University. Tentatively, the program starts Thursday June 4th at 9:00 and ends Friday at 16:00. The program will include up to 10-12 papers with their discussions, leaving ample time for comments from the audience and for interaction among participants. Presenters and discussants are expected to attend for the whole duration of the conference. More details about the conference and the venue can be found at:

29/06/2020 New Perspectives on Interwar Financial and Banking Crises, Paris
Hosted By: Paris School of Economics
Organizers: Tobias Straumann, Olivier Accominotti, Stéphanie Collet, Eric Monnet, Natacha Postel-Vinay, Gary Richardson and Angelo Riva

The recent global financial crisis has sparked renewed interest in the interwar financial and banking crises, particularly those associated with the Great Depression of the 1930s. This new wave of research has been supported by an unprecedented increase in the digitisation of monetary and financial statistics as well as data on local economic activity and businesses. The digitisation of newspapers, central bank and parliamentary reports in several countries improves access to archival sources, opening new perspectives on the political economy of these crises.

Remarkable progress has been made in our understanding of domestic or international financial contagion (through interbank networks), as well as the real effects of banking crises. However, this new wave of research has remained little comparative, and most of the work has focused on the contagion and consequences of the 1930-1931 banking troubles.

The first objective of this conference is to be truly comparative by bringing together researchers working on numerous different countries. The second is to extend the scope of the analysis by considering the entire period between the two world wars. We are very interested in articles that attempt to explain the financial vulnerabilities of the early 1930s by examining the accumulation of risk (and the first financial crises) that started in the aftermath of the First World War. Third, the conference aims to examine the entire financial system, investigating the relationships between stock markets, banks and non-bank financial institutions (including public financial entities). Fourth, we also welcome papers that study how financial and banking systems were fixed in countries exiting crises.
