AIM: After seven 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).

By the early ‘2000 an increasing numbers of countries had adopted a well defined central bank framework, which was characterized by two intertwined features: the authority becomes specialized in achieving the monetary policy goals, and consequently its traditional responsibilities in pursuing the financial stability were less important in its institutional perimeter.

But then, after the Financial Crisis erupted in 2008, reforms are undertaken and projects are under discussion in order to reconsider the central bank role as well its governance. How to design the new central bank setting in order to address the relationships between monetary, macro e micro prudential policies?

The Steering Committee welcomes theoretical and empirical papers that shed light on the evolution of the central banking before and after the crisis, on the different causes of change in, and their consequences.
