Symposium “Global Banking, Financial Stability, and Post-Crisis Policy Challenges”

On February 1, 2013, the Institute of Global Business & Society (GLOBUS) at Cologne university of Applied Science in cooperation with the European Center for Corporate Engagement (ECCE) and Maastricht University hosted a symposium on “Global Banking, Financial Stability, and Post-Crisis Policy Challenges” at Maastricht University.

This one-day symposium brought together leading experts and practitioners from academia, industry and regulatory bodies with three major intentions: First, to discuss recent advances in research on banking globalization and financial stability. Second, to exchange views on urgent policy and regulatory issues to balance the cost and benefits of global banking. Third, to make these views visible to a broader audience in the profession as well as to policy makers and an interested civil society. Comparative Economic Studies will publish a special symposium issue in June 2014.

Watch interviews with two panelist that have been recorded at the Symposium.
