Global Research Forum on International Macroeconomics and Finance

November 17-18, 2016, New York


The third bi-annual Global Research Forum on International Macroeconomics and Finance, organized by the European Central Bank, Federal Reserve Board, and Federal Reserve Bank of New York, will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in New York City on November 17-18, 2016. The purpose of the Forum is to promote the discussion of frontier research on empirical and theoretical issues in International Finance, Banking, and Open Economy Macroeconomics, with a special eye on relevance for monetary policy.

In the wake of volatile financial and commodity markets, recent financial crises, significant exchange rate realignments and international capital flows, slow growth and some deflationary pressures, policymakers around the world face many challenges attaining economic goals and maintaining financial stability. Paper submissions addressing these and related issues are highly encouraged.

Some specific examples of relevant topics might include:

  • Cross-borders financial spillovers due to global risk, sovereign default risk and policy uncertainty
  • International considerations in setting monetary, fiscal and prudential policy
  • Safe haven currencies: drivers and effects
  • Challenges from structural shifts in commodity markets and global demand

Submission Deadline
