The European Banking Authority (EBA) launches today a call for research papers in view of its second policy research workshop taking place on 14-15 November in London on the topic “How to regulate and resolve systemically important banks”.
The workshop aims at bringing together economists from national supervisory authorities and leading academics to stimulate the discussion on the design and impact of the various proposals currently being discussed at EU and global level on systemically important banks.
In preparation for the workshop, the EBA invites all interested parties and especially researchers from supervisory authorities and central banks, to submit their papers for presentation at the workshop.
The submission deadline is 21 June 2013. Papers will be selected by a programme committee established for the workshop.
Interested parties can download the detailed call for papers which includes specific proposed topics for the papers, composition of the programme committee and contact details for the submission of papers.
The European Banking Authority was established by Regulation (EC) No. 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 November 2010. The EBA has officially come into being as of 1 January 2011 and has taken over all existing and ongoing tasks and responsibilities from the Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS). The EBA acts as a hub and spoke network of EU and national bodies safeguarding public values such as the stability of the financial system, the transparency of markets and financial products and the protection of depositors and investors.
