Resolution and its frontiers – an integrated law and economics approach

March 3, 2017 all-day Europe/Rome Timezone
European University Institute
Agnieszka Smoleńska

The global financial crisis and the European fiscal crisis raised a set of cardinal questions concerning the organization of an economic integrated area. The bank resolution rules introduced by the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive and the Single Resolution Mechanism Regulation have created a whole new area of law in the EU but touch on many areas of substantive law, including insolvency law and competition law – some already harmonized at European level, others only partially. This area of law is to further extended for institutions other than banks, such as insurance companies and central counterparties. In this PhD-workshop economists and legal scholars shall jointly discuss the current challenges related to the emergence of this new area of law by looking at its boundaries. The organizers are interested in all topics which fall under the umbrella of the broad workshop topic.

With this focus, the seminar is addressed to PhD-students of law, economics and related disciplines, who will present current research-projects that relate to recent or future European legal developments and challenges in the field of resolution law or the European Banking Union in the broader context.

Two topical keynotes from experts in the field will complement the workshop.

Application Procedure:
Early stage researchers (Ph.D.-students or Post-docs) which are interested in participating in the workshop shall submit a full paper or an extended abstract related to the workshop topic via email to Agnieszka Smoleńska (agnieszka.smolenska@EUI.eu) or Lynette Janssen (l.g.a.janssen@law.leidenuniv.nl) no later than December 31, 2016. The decision of including papers for presentation at the workshop will be communicated by January 15, 2017.
