Call for papers – Policies for Economic Stability: Lessons and the Way Forward | Galatina (Lecce, Italy) | 28-29 August 2017

An ADEMU workshop aimed at presenting and discussing the ongoing research on stabilization policies in the aftermath of the financial crisis will be held in Galatina next 28-29 August. Papers and extended abstract should be submitted by 30 April 2017.

Deadline for submissions: 30 April 2017

One of the main consequences of the outbreak of the financial and euro crises has been a dramatic increase of large scale unemployment in the euro-area and almost everywhere around the world, matched by a period of tight credit markets and fiscal austerity. Even if some economies start (slowly) to recover most questions posed by these crises remain open. Was such an unfortunate timing unavoidable? How these different factors interacted? Which policies can be implemented to avoid crises becoming recessions? Can financial stability strengthened through credit market regulations? Are stabilization policies effective in a context of fiscal austerity? Can unemployment risks be shared when national labour markets differ?

An ADEMU workshop will be held in Galatina on 28-29 August with the aim of addressing the above questions as well as presenting and discussing ground-breaking research with a major focus on Unemployment Insurance, Stabilization through Fiscal Policy and Credit markets Regulation.

Interested authors are invited to submit paper and extended abstract by 30 April 2017 to: (Subject: ADEMU Policies for Economic Stability).
