The Single Resolution Board, the Florence School of Banking and Finance, and the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE are organising an interdisciplinary academic event, entitled ‘Bank crisis management – what next?’. The event will take place in the afternoons of 17 & 18 November 2021 in a virtual format. With the Global Financial Crisis now more than a decade behind us, and against the backdrop of a seemingly strongly recovering economy, this academic event aims to identify, and evaluate the successes and challenges of the post-crisis EU bank crisis management framework. How has the presence of new resolution tools, precautionary measures and regulations stood up in times of stress? Are we on a road to economic recovery that will also invigorate the financial sector? Or is the financial sector standing on a dangerous cliff edge that is yet to be recognised? What are the next steps in the journey towards a sustainable and stable financial sector in the EU and in other jurisdictions? These and more questions will be explored during the two half-day conference jointly organised by the SRB, FBF, and SAFE. The event brings together leading scholars, and policy-makers to discuss economic, financial, legal, political and public policy topics located at the cutting edge of financial stability and bank crisis management, both from a European and non-European perspective.  

Topics

We welcome original theoretical and empirical contributions, from different disciplines and geographies, on topics including, but not limited to:
  • Review of the EU bank crisis management and deposit insurance framework: tension between handling bank failures and protecting depositors;
  • Completing the Banking Union: the European Deposit Insurance Scheme;
  • Shielding EU public money from the effects of bank failures under EU State Aid rules;
  • Interaction between liquidity, capital and bail-inable debt requirements;
  • Cross-border resolution and challenges for home/host authorities;
  • Liquidity and funding in resolution: progress and challenges ahead;
  • Did post-financial-crisis reforms make the EU banking sector more resilient?;
  • Moments of widespread bank fragility: contagion, systemic risk, and resolution;
  • The role of international standard-setting in resolution and crisis management rules;
  • The impact of Covid-19 on European banks and on the EU bank crisis management framework;
  • Does the exit strategy post-Covid-19 pose a challenge to the banking sector?; and
  • Safe assets & Covid-19 recovery.
While some of the topics are Europe-specific, we also encourage papers that assess non-European experience.  

Submissions

  • Each contribution should address one of the above topics and should include an Extended Abstract of maximum one-page.
  • The deadline for submission is 1 September 2021.
  • The authors of papers accepted by the Scientific Committee will be notified by 15 October 2021.
  • The selected papers will be eligible for publication on the SRB, FBF, and SAFE websites. Presenters may also be interviewed for an SRB podcast and for selected short FBF videos.
