The SAFE Summer Academy provides a research-based training for European policymakers dealing with financial markets regulation. Participants are given an academically disciplined, fact- and evidence-based assessment of the impact of the recently implemented reforms on (international) financial markets and their stability. Topics are chosen to reflect current policy questions and open debates. The Summer Academy intends to equip its attendees to better fulfil their responsibilities within their respective institutions for properly designing the framework for a sustainable architecture for finance.
The faculty and panel participants comprise leading scholars in the field together with expert practitioners.The Summer Academy is primarily aimed at members of European parliaments (and their collaborators) and division heads (as well as senior officials) from European ministries of general governmental affairs, finance and economic affairs. To allow for extensive interaction and engagement with faculty, the number of participants in the Summer Academy will be strictly limited.
