5th Interdisciplinary Sovereign Debt Research and Management Conference


DebtCon is back!

The European University Institute will be hosting the 5th edition of the Interdisciplinary Sovereign Debt Research and Management Conference, on 25-27 May 2022 in Florence (Italy). In addition to DebtCon5, three side events will be held online – further information will be announced in due time, so stay tuned! 

In this unique international and interdisciplinary conference, we welcome paper submissions from economists, finance and legal scholars, historians, political scientists, political economists, sociologists and anthropologists working in theoretical and empirical areas related to sovereign debt as well as from practitioners. Contributions from emerging scholars and junior policymakers are highly encouraged. DebtCon5 does not reimburse speaker travel expenses; however, selected scholars who are unable to travel to DebtCon5 for lack of funding may contact the organizers to help identify potential sources of financial support.  

The objective of DebtCon5 is to discuss state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research on sovereign debt and related policy issues, and to foster interaction among academics, senior policymakers and supervisors, industry representatives, and other practitioners. The conference will include both high-level roundtables, where practice, policy and research will meet, and parallel sessions, where research papers will be presented. Emerging scholars will have the opportunity to present their work in an emerging-scholars side-event.  

We look forward to welcoming you at DebtCon5 in Florence on 25-27 May 2022!
