As the financial crisis started in 2007 evolved, the Heads of States of the G-20 called last November for reforms of financial regulation and set guiding principles. Indeed, recent events in the financial sector have triggered a major policy debate, both among academics and policy makers, about the impacts of financial regulation on the functioning of financial systems and the behaviour of their participants.
Of concerns are the risk that some financial regulation may have procyclical consequences and that current regulation insufficiently addresses certain categories of risks (systemic, extreme, liquidity…). Also debated is whether the perspectives of regulation need to be adjusted, for instance so as to better take into account macroprudential objectives and the need to safeguard the financial system as a whole.
Against this backdrop and with a view to contributing to this international policy discussion, the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) and Banque de France are organising an international conference on the future of financial regulation.
The conference is aimed at bringing selected top academics together to present their latest thoughts and findings on some of the major regulatory challenges. It will be focused more particularly on three issues: risk measurement, systemic risk and liquidity regulation.
This conference in the field of financial stability is part of the long term partnership TSE and Banque de France are building with the goal of strengthening monetary and financial stability research in topics of critical importance for central banks.
The following persons will present their research or their own experience in this field : Claudio Borio (BIS), Rama Cont (Columbia University), Mathias Dewatripont (Université libre de Bruxelles), Christian Gollier (TSE), Martin Hellwig (Max Planck Institute), Bengt Holmström (MIT), Jean-Pierre Landau (Banque de France), Peter Praet (BNB), Rafael Repullo (CEMFI), Jean-Charles Rochet (TSE), José Scheinkman (Princeton University) and Jean Tirole (TSE)
