This workshop will reflect on banking and financial conditions as the world emerges from the pandemic and enters a new geopolitical era in Europe. At the start of the pandemic, serious dislocation in global money markets was averted partly through central bank cooperation. Banks in many countries were then tasked with allocating funds to nurse economies through the cessation of economic activity. The recovery has been uneven and shows evidence of new strains caused by supply shocks, inflation and challenges in reorienting monetary policy. Military aggression from Russia in the Ukraine prompted sanctions focused on the global payments system. How have banking and finance coped with previous periods of crisis and recovery?
For program participants, accommodation costs (booked by the organizers) and travel expenses (up to 800 EUR) will be covered. If you have any questions, please contact Hanna Floto-Degener. Welcome dinner for active participants will be held on 28 June.
