Global financial linkages and monetary policy transmission

Paris, Friday 30 June 2017
Banque de France, Conference area

The Banque de France, together with the International Banking Research Network (IBRN), the Paris School of Economics and the Bundesbank, organizes a conference on “Global financial linkages and monetary policy transmission”. To assist the conference, (free) registration is mandatory (for safety reasons) by sending an e-mail to

The object of the conference is to present state-of-the-art empirical and theoretical research on international monetary policy spillovers as well as to provide a forum for the dissemination of the research results of the International Banking Research Network (IBRN). IBRN brings together central bank researchers to analyze the role of cross-border banking in the transmission of financial shocks. By using microbanking data, the teams compare which bank characteristics, if any, change the nature of transmission and identify the most important channels of transmission. The IBRN’s country teams will present their findings on the impact of conventional and unconventional monetary policy actions on lending of both home-grown domestic banks and hosted foreign banks. The conference will also feature presentations by academics on international monetary policy transmission and related topics. This one-day event will close with a keynote address by Philip Lane.

Selected papers presented in the conference will be considered for an expedited review process for a Journal of International Money and Finance special issue.
