Post-crisis macro prudential regulations and various facilities implemented during the current COVID-19 pandemic directly or indirectly use different notions of interconnectedness to reduce systemic risk and promote financial stability. Yet, the economic content of most interconnectedness measures and the role played by the structure of the financial system in shaping systemic risk remain, at best, imperfectly understood.

This conference will bring together leading academics and policymakers to discuss research that expands our understanding of the interconnectedness of financial systems. We welcome theoretical and empirical contributions on topics including, but not limited to:

  • New approaches to measure and monitor systemic risk;
  • Pandemics and financial stability;
  • Impact of post-crisis reforms on interconnectedness and systemic risk;
  • Design of supervision and regulation in interconnected financial systems;
  • Financial stability implications of fire sales and short-term funding markets;
  • Implications of interconnectedness for stress testing.
