Filling the Gaps in Governance: The Case of Europe @ Sala Europa
Apr 28 all-day

The European University Institute (EUI), the Brevan Howard Centre at Imperial College together with BAFFI CAREFIN at Bocconi University are organising jointly a conference entitled “Filling the Gaps in Governance: The Case of Europe” to be held at the EUI in Florence on Thursday, April 28, 2016

The conference will bring together leading economists, lawyers, political scientists and policy makers to discuss the current economic situation in Europe with particular emphasis on the issue of filling the gaps or incompleteness in the agreements governing economic cooperation in Europe.  These agreements, implicit and explicit, range from matters such as the agreements about domestic debt/GDP levels, the “no bailout clause”, the new banking union, the use of a common currency, the agreement to include identical Collective Action Clauses in all Euro area sovereign bonds and so on.

Franklin Allen | Brevan Howard Centre Imperial College

Financial Deregulation: A Historical Perspective @ Sala Europa, Villa Schifanoia
Jun 16 @ 2:00 pm – Jun 17 @ 1:30 pm

This conference will address the liberalisation of the financial sector that occurred towards the end of the 20th Century, with a particular focus on the 1980s. It will cover different countries and consider the emergence and persistence of a new regulatory paradigm until – or even after – the recent financial crisis.

In most rich countries, various measures have been passed in order to liberalise and “modernise” the financial markets. Each country had its own agenda, but each of them has experienced, to a various extent, a change in regulatory regime. Interest rates paid on deposits have been liberalised, competition has been favoured, traditional barriers between insurance, banking, and
financial market activities, have been removed, as well as exchange controls. Access to domestic markets by foreign financial institutions has been facilitated through reciprocal agreements or through an open door approach attracting foreign investors.
Financial deregulation – or liberalisation – has not yet been thoroughly examined by historians, though, because of the difficulty to access archival material for recent periods. However, such material is becoming increasingly accessible and allows historians to take a new look at the matter, particularly concerning the 1980s.

As major reforms of the financial sector, such as Basel III, are being widely debated today, it is important to take a broader and longer-term view, in order to understand if we are still living under the same regulatory regime as before, or if a truly new paradigm has emerged. We will address the relevance of the notion of “deregulation”, the links between the changes under consideration and globalisation, and the respective influence of market forces and politics in this process. These questions call for an interdisciplinary approach that not only looks at historical and economic aspects, but also addresses legal, conceptual, and political issues.

FBF Annual Conference: “The Changing Geography of Finance and Regulation in Europe” @ Villa Schifanoia
Apr 27 all-day
FBF Annual Conference: "The Changing Geography of Finance and Regulation in Europe" @ Villa Schifanoia | Firenze | Toscana | Italy

The annual conference of the Florence School of Banking and Finance, organised at the European University Institute (EUI), brings together leading economists, lawyers, political scientists and policy makers to discuss the current economic situation in Europe.

Organisers:

Franklin Allen | Brevan Howard Centre Imperial College
Elena Carletti | BAFFI CAREFIN Bocconi University and European University Institute
Joanna Gray | Birmingham University
Mitu Gulati | Duke University

Background:

The financial world is undergoing a profound technological change. The advent of innovative technologies is unsettling the industry’s modus operandi which will soon enough disrupt the current practices of both supervisors and central banks. Big data, block-chain and the proliferation of distributed ledgers are only a few illustrations of a wider financial technology industry build-up – known as FinTech – which will revolutionise the global financial infrastructure.
As a result of this, the geography of finance is evolving at a rapid pace. In this new context of digital transformation and innovation, how should regulation respond? Is regulatory arbitrage and the reliance on more decentralised regulatory regimes a possible solution or is the top-down central model resilient enough to sustain these changes? Can regulators turn these new challenges into opportunities?

Sessions:

  • Session 1: The New World of FinTech
  • Session 2: Regulatory Arbitrage across Jurisdictions
  • Session 3: A Case Study: BREXIT

FBF Annual Conference: ‘Institutions and the Crisis’ @ Villa Schifanoia

FBF Annual Conference: 'Institutions and the Crisis' @ Villa Schifanoia | Firenze | Toscana | Italy

The annual conference of the Florence School of Banking and Finance, organised at the European University Institute (EUI) brings together leading economists, lawyers, political scientists and policy makers to critically analyse, review and debate the most salient elements and gaps of Europe’s post-crisis institutional architecture.

Organisers:

Franklin Allen | Brevan Howard Centre Imperial College
Elena Carletti | BAFFI CAREFIN Bocconi University and European University Institute
Mitu Gulati | Duke University

Background:

The crisis has turned Europe’s economic and financial governance into a patchwork of bodies, instruments and rules that are hard to disentangle. Against this background, the purpose of this conference is to critically analyse, review and debate the most salient elements and gaps of Europe’s post-crisis institutional architecture.

More specifically, the conference aims:
  • to draw analytical and practical lessons from the crisis management solutions provided by European Union institutions
  • to interrogate how courts discussed, challenged and legitimized the EU’s key crisis-led decisions
  • to look ahead and boldly ask and discuss what should be the Economic and Monetary Union’s optimal institutional set-up – also in light of a renewed and conceivably more dynamic French-German cooperation moment.

Sessions:

  • Session 1: A Look Back: Evaluating European Institutions’ Crisis Management
  • Session 2: Disentangling The Crisis And The Courts
  • Session 3: The Way Forward: The Eurozone’s Institutional Prospects
