The 16th Conference will focus on the greater cohesion across Europe in monetary, fiscal and macroprudential policy while set against an increasingly fractured and polarized international (trade) environment. In particular, the conference will address challenges concerning monetary policy normalisation and greater policy cohesion in the fiscal and macroprudential policy areas. It will also address the implications of disruptions to trade due to Brexit and increased global tensions between the United States and China.
We seek both empirical and theoretical policy-relevant papers. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  •  Monetary policy normalisation and macroprudential policy.
  •  Monetary and fiscal policy coordination or (dis)integration within the Eurozone?
  •  European cohesion and growth-enhancing policies.
  •  Structural and public reforms and Institutions in the Eurozone.
  •  Policy coordination, macroeconomic imbalances and fiscal sustainability.
  •  Barriers to international trade, capital and labour mobility in the light of Brexit and global tensions.

Keynote Speaker: Karl Whelan University College Dublin
