On 17 and 18 October 2023, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) organised the fifth macroprudential policy and research conference at the ECB. As a follow up to the conference and to further explore the main themes addressed, the Journal of Banking and Finance is preparing a special issue on the topic of macroprudential policy and research.

More specifically, we welcome theoretical and empirical contributions on the following topics:

  • Operationalizing objectives for macroprudential policy, including through rules and metrics of the policy stance,
  • effectiveness of macroprudential policy in enhancing financial system resilience, countering procyclicality and shaping incentives,
  • experience with the macroprudential toolkit at global or regional levels, including on the use of capital- and/or borrower-based macroprudential instruments and their interaction,
  • lessons for macroprudential policy from the pandemic, for example on the topics of capital buffer usability or the macroprudential policy space,
  • challenges for macroprudential policy in an environment of elevated inflation and macroeconomic volatility, also including interactions with monetary policy,
  • the role of macroprudential policy for non-banks and in the interactions between banks and non-banks


The Journal of Banking & Finance’s submission system will be open for submissions to our Special Issue from 01/01/2024. Please submit your manuscript before 29/02/2024.  Each submission must be accompanied by a submission fee.
