The Event

This is the second edition of an annual conference series on the Political Economy of Finance. The series is an initiative of PolEconFin, a platform for researchers active in the political economy of finance.

This second edition will be dedicated to the intersection between political institutions, central banks, and the real sector.

The academic programme will consist of six papers with discussants and also feature a keynote lecture by:

Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley and CEPR

Questions regarding central banks’ independence and their mandates have repeatedly drawn renewed interest, first in the context of legacy issues in financial crises, the COVID-19 shock and the world climate emergency. This concerns both their role as supervisors and monetary policy authorities. At the same time, technological evolution in finance also challenges the modus operandi of central banks. These broad questions have major political economy implications. The organising committee invites submissions of theoretical and empirical papers on these issues. Topics of interest for the conference include:

• The politics of central bank independence
• Central bank power and COVID-19
• Economists’ capture and central bank research
• Private interests, lobbying, and central bank capture
• Democratic institutions and the design of monetary and financial authorities
• The (political) role of central banks in climate change
• Political consequences of central bank policies
• Independence and accountability in the conduct of monetary and financial policies
• Central bank’s mandate and governance problems
• Political economy aspects of central bank digital currencies
• Political challenges in regulating FinTech
• Financial repression and debt


The submission deadline is Sunday 29 May 2022 (6PM BST).

5 - 7 December 2022 / Geneva, Switzerland / World Trade Organization - WTO Gender Research Hub and WTO Trade and Gender Unit

The WTO Gender Research Hub has issued a call for papers for the first edition of the World Trade Congress on Gender entitled “Gender Equality for Sustainable Trade and Recovery.” The Congress, which will take place on 5-7 December 2022 at the WTO, is part of the research agenda undertaken by the WTO Gender Research Hub and the WTO Trade and Gender Unit. Selected applicants will have the opportunity to present their work to a global audience and to join a research network supporting trade and gender work at the WTO.
The Congress will provide a platform to draw attention to the findings of published or soon-to-be published research conducted by trade and gender experts and aims to promote innovative research in this field. Submissions are open for both members and non-members of the Hub.

The theme of the Congress is intended to highlight the trade and gender issues related to the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It also provides an opportunity to deepen understanding of how women's empowerment can help countries overcome future crises, whether environmental, financial or food security related — and how trade can contribute to this. The Hub further invites participants to reflect on the extent to which trade can accelerate recovery and help rebuild a gender-responsive economic environment after crises.

The Congress Committee welcomes proposals on the following sub-themes, among others:

• Trade, gender and sustainable development
• Trade, employment and gender
• Trade, foreign investment and gender
• Trade, COVID-19 and gender
• Trade, gender and standards
• Gender, trade facilitation and crises
• Gender, infrastructure and crises
• Aid for trade, gender and recovery
• Role of the WTO and trade to promote gender equality in crises
• Role of women in trade during crises
• Role of free trade agreements for an inclusive solution to crises
• Trade, women entrepreneurs and recovery
• Trade, gender and innovation

Applicants are invited to submit a detailed abstract defining their research questions, methodological approach, and outcomes. The abstract should mention where the research has been published. If the paper has not yet been published, the abstracts must include sufficient detail to provide a sufficient understanding of the work expected in the final paper.

Applications should be submitted to [email protected] with the subject “WTCG — Call for Papers” by 1 July 2022.

Selected applicants will be notified at the latest by 1 September 2022.
The Congress will be a public event open to academics, students, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, and delegations of WTO members.
