September 28, 2017 - September 29, 2017

Hôtel Dupanloup
1 rue Dupanloup
45000 Orléans


The registration is closed !

In the last years, the eurozone got confronted with different severe challenges, such as: the financial and economic world crisis, so called the Great Recession (Global Financial Crisis) and Euro crisis (debt and banking crisis). Additionally, other challenges might affect, in the future, the eurozone economies through international economic transmission channels: the Middle East conflict with high implications on oil price or the Chinese economic rebound.

Within this framework, a specific attention can be devoted to the relation between globalization and growth with a specific focus on the EMU.

Both theoretical and empirical papers that deal with these research topics will be presented and discussed.

Main topics

Financial and Debt Crisis ; Globalization and Economic Asymmetries ; Fiscal Policy and Public Finance ; Banking and Finance ; International Trade; Labour and Capital Markets; Monetary and Financial Economics ; Commodities and Financial Markets ; Energy Economics ; Growth and Business Cycles ; International Macroeconomics and Monetary Policy
