Call for Papers: Conference on Global and Regional Financial Architecture and Global Shocks


Conference on Global and Regional Financial Architecture and Global Shocks
Nanyang Technical University, Singapore
23–24 August 2016

The status of the global and Asian regional financial architectures and their relations continue to evolve in an economic environment subject to new shocks and volatilities. The experience of the “Troika” (European Commission, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund) in managing the European sovereign debt crisis can provide valuable lessons for cooperation of multilateral and regional institutions in Asia. Regional institutions such as the Chiang Mai Initiative Multilateralization have been strengthened significantly. Meanwhile, the emergence of new shocks such as US monetary policy tightening; the adoption of negative-interest-rate policies by the European Central Bank, Bank of Japan, and other central banks; the slowdown of the People’s Republic of China; and the sharp drop in oil and other commodity prices have highlighted the region’s continued vulnerability to volatile capital flows and trade-related shocks.

The Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI), in cooperation with S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, invites submissions of original, unpublished papers on any aspect of global and regional financial architecture and global shocks relating to, although not limited to, the following:

  • Analysis of regional vulnerabilities in Asia to global monetary and real shocks
  • Capital flow management in response to global shocks
  • Developments in national financial regulation and supervision
  • Global and regional financial regulation and supervision
  • Regional and national support for financial stability, development, and integration
  • Financial safety nets, crisis prevention, and crisis management

Important dates:

  • Deadline for submission of draft paper(s) or substantial abstract: 15 July 2016
  • Workshop date: 23–24 August 2016

ADBI will meet the travel and accommodation costs of one author per paper. Accepted papers will be considered for a special issue of a Social Sciences Citation Index journal and/or a book volume.

Submissions should be sent to: Peter Morgan, Senior Consultant for Research, [email protected]. Tokyo, Japan.
