13th South-Eastern European Economic Research Workshop
Organized by the Bank of Albania
Bank of Albania has the pleasure to announce its 13th SEE Economic Research Workshop, hosted on 5 and 6 December 2019 in Tirana, Albania.
Thirteen years into serving as a cooperation bridge, the workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussing latest economic and finance research, to foster exchanges of views between central bankers, academic community, market practitioners’, researchers and policymakers in the region and beyond. The workshop aims to develop long-term collaborative relationships and encourage interaction among participants in their fields of interests. In line with our tradition, the workshop is open to multidisciplinary research and welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions on central bank relevant topics. This year’s workshop will have special focus on exchange rate developments and their implications for central banks and the economy.
We welcome theoretical and empirical contributions on following topics1:
· What is driving exchange rate developments and their implications for price and financial stability;
· Theoretical and empirical aspects of transmission mechanism and macro prudential policy;
· Dynamics in financial innovation and implications for central banks;
· Macroeconomic Models for policy analysis and forecasts;
· Trade impediment, trade barriers and global capital flows,
· Incorporating household and firm behavior into monetary and financial stability analysis.
· New technologies, risk behavior and bank supervision.
The scope of the conference is not limited to the topics listed above, and submissions on other related topics are also welcome.
