Special Issue of Comparative Economic Studies

On February 1, 2013, the European Center for Corporate Engagement (ECCE) in cooperation with the Institute of Global Business & Society (GLOBUS) and NWO hosted a symposium on “Global Banking, Financial Stability, and Post-Crisis Policy Challenges”. In its June 2014 edition,Comparative Economic Studies has dedicated a special issue to the symposium.

This one-day symposium brought together leading experts and practitioners from academia, industry and regulatory bodies with these major intentions: First, to discuss recent advances in research on banking globalization and financial stability. Second, to exchange views on urgent policy and regulatory issues to balance the cost and benefits of global banking. Third, to make these views visible to a broader audience in the profession as well as to policy makers and an interested civil society. For details on the symposium, click here.

In the June 2014 special issue of Comparative Economic Studies, the panelists reflect on the symposium discussions and share their views on the lessons learned from the financial crisis of 2008 with the broader audience in the profession as well as with policy makers and an interested civil society. Special thanks are due to CES and the CES editors, in particular Professor Paul Wachtel, to make this special issue possible.
