SRB-FBF-SAFE academic event: Bank crisis management – what next?

SRB events | - | Online

The Single Resolution Board, the Florence School of Banking and Finance (European University Institute), and the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE are organising an interdisciplinary academic event, entitled ‘Bank crisis management – what next?’. The event will take place in the afternoons of 17 & 18 November 2021 in a virtual format.

  • SRB-FBF-EVENT [a] srb.europa.eu (Contact us for more information)

With the Global Financial Crisis now more than a decade behind us, and against the backdrop of a seemingly strongly recovering economy, this academic event aims to identify, and evaluate the successes and challenges of the post-crisis EU bank crisis management framework.

Topics 

We welcome original theoretical and empirical contributions, from different disciplines, on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Review of the EU bank crisis management and deposit insurance framework: tension between handling bank failures and protecting depositors;
  • Completing the Banking Union: the European Deposit Insurance Scheme;
  • Shielding EU public money from the effects of bank failures under EU State Aid rules;
  • Interaction between liquidity, capital and bail-inable debt requirements;
  • Cross-border resolution and challenges for home/host authorities;
  • Liquidity and funding in resolution: progress and challenges ahead;
  • Did post-financial-crisis reforms make the EU banking sector more resilient?;
  • Moments of widespread bank fragility: contagion, systemic risk, and resolution;
  • The role of international standard-setting in resolution and crisis management rules;
  • The impact of Covid-19 on European banks and on the EU bank crisis management framework;
  • Does the exit strategy post-Covid-19 pose a challenge to the banking sector?; and
  • Safe assets & Covid-19 recovery.

While some of the topics are Europe-specific, we also encourage papers that assess non-European experience.

Submissions & application procedure 

  • Papers should be submitted in PDF format to the SAFE portal link.
  • Each contribution should address one of the above topics and should include an Extended Abstract of maximum one-page.
  • The deadline for submission is 1 September 2021.
