Seventh Edition - Finlawmetrics 2012

21-22, June, Bocconi University, Italy

The Tailor Rule at the Crossroads: Monetary Policy, Prudential Issues and Central Banking

AIM: After six editions, Finlawmetrics has established itself as a unique forum for scientific and policy analyses and discussions of the most relevant issues related to the evolution of thinking, judgment, and practice in the fields of monetary policy and financial regulation and supervision.

The initiative is scientifically promoted by three leading research centres: The Paolo Baffi Centre on Central Banking and Financial Regulation (Bocconi University), the European Banking Center (Tilburg University) and the Center on Central Banks and Financial Institutions (New York University).

The crisis started in 2007 has raised important questions about the design of monetary policy, which was well established on three intertwined pillars: Taylor Rule (strategy), interest rate policy (tactics) and central bank independence (setting). How the increasing role of prudential issues can change the three pillars? The 2012 edition wishes to address the key issues that are emerging for the design of post-crisis policies and institutions.

The Steering Committee welcomes theoretical and empirical papers that shed light on the shape of the Taylor Rule before and after the crisis, on the different causes of change in, and their consequences, both in the developed and emerging countries.

STEERING COMMITTEE: Coordinators: Donato Masciandaro (Bocconi University), Sylvester Eijffinger (Tilburg University and CEPR), Geoffrey Miller (New York University), Steven Ongena (Tilburg University), Marc Quintyn (IMF Institute, International Monetary Fund), Tommaso Monacelli (Bocconi University)

Economics: Jerry Caprio (Williams College), Kevin Davis (University of Melbourne), Jakob De Haan (University of Groningen), Charles Goodhart (London School of Economics), George Kaufman (Loyola University Chicago), Iftekhar Hasan (Fordham University), Ross Levine (Brown University), Rafael Repullo (CEMFI Madrid and CEPR), Pierre Siklos (Wilfrid Laurier University), Stijn Claessens (International Monetary Fund), Guido Tabellini (Bocconi University and CEPR)

Law: Kern Alexander (Queen Mary University of London), Fabian Amtenbrink (Erasmus University Rotterdam), Benjamin Geva (York University, Toronto), Rosa Lastra (Queen Mary University of London), Fabio Recine (European Central Bank), Hal Scott (Harvard University), Joe McCahery (Tilburg University and EBC)

TOPIC: The Conference will focus on the relationships between monetary policy, prudential issues and central banking - economics and political economy - in developed and emerging countries.

FORMAT: Papers will be presented in session presentations of 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of plenary discussion. No more than 10 papers will be presented and overall participation at the workshop will be limited to 30 people.

Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law 20th Annual Conference Wellington, 5-7 July 2012 -- Call for Papers 

This Conference is the Society’s twentieth annual conference, and provides an opportunity to reflect on the last twenty years in the development of international law, but equally important to look ahead to the emerging issues and to speculate on what the next twenty years will bring for international law and its practice and teaching. The relentless progression of climate change, the political revolutions and uprisings in the Middle East, the relationship between the growing economic and political power of countries outside Europe and North America and their approach to international law and diplomacy, the sharpening of debates over food security, the inability of the United Nations to reform its institutional arrangements relating to international peace and security, the fragility of the international financial system and popular movements challenging its morality and legitimacy, the resurgence of fundamentalisms, and the continuing disgrace of widespread poverty, are just some of the issues with which papers might engage.

The Committee would welcome papers exploring significant conceptual or practical shifts in the development, substantive content, implementation, teaching or practice of international law.
