International Journal of Central Banking and Danmarks Nationalbank
The International Journal of Central Banking (IJCB) is organising its 2020 annual conference, “Structural changes in the financial system: new theory and evidence”. The conference will take place on 20-21August 2020 at Danmarks Nationalbank in Copenhagen, Denmark. The programme committee comprises Tobias Adrian, Elena Carletti, Huberto Ennis, Linda Goldberg, Luc Laeven, and Steven Ongena. Since the global financial crisis, the financial system has undergone major structural changes due to the fallout from the crisis, technological innovation, changes in the underlying growth rates of economies, the interest rate environment and the growth of non-banks. This raises many questions about the future landscape of the financial system and how policymakers should react to these developments. This conference will bring together leading economists from central banks, academia, and other research institutions to discuss new results and policy lessons pertaining to structural changes in the financial system.
