Overcoming Economic Inequalities – Role of European Financial Systems

4 - 5 April, 2019, Grandhotel**** Stary Smokovec, Slovak Republic

Department of Banking and International Finance in cooperation with Nadacia Narodohospodar will host an international conference on the topic above, on 4 and 5 April 2019 in Grandhotel**** Stary Smokovec, Slovak Republic.


This conference aims at bringing scholars both from the Europe and other parts of the world to discuss experience of the European countries in dealing with problems of increasing economic inequalities. Global economy has suffered from deepening of economic inequalities among individual institutional entities within particular economic sectors. In light of the recent financial crisis the financial sector has become both the driver of economic inequalities as well as tool to mitigate their effects. The conference shall therefore provide a platform to discuss role of particular segments of financial systems in deepening of economic inequalities as well as to address new challenges to future economic and financial development. 


In our call for papers we ask for contributions that will focus on following areas of research and will be written in English language:

  1. Banking system stability as a precondition for balanced development
  2. (De-)stabilizing role of financial markets
  3. Financial innovations as a new source of inequalities
  4. Distributional effects of monetary policy
  5. New architecture for financial surveillance and regulation
  6. Macroeconomic imbalances as a reflection of present economic heterogeneity
