Annual Conference

1st CAM-Risk conference - 18-20 December 2024


New risks and policy challenges.

The Global Financial Crisis (GFC), marked the end of the Great Moderation, a relatively prosperous period associated with stable macroeconomic regime conditions. Since then, the global economy has apparently entered a new phase characterized by a sequence of adverse financial, epidemic, geopolitical risks, let alone the dramatic issue of climate change. The widespread increase in inequality and political polarization favor the emergence of policies that might damage international trade. Technological developments  (AI) might potentially reverse the slowdown in productivity growth that plagued developed economies since the end of the ‘90s, but they pose risks too, and require regulatory intervention. A similar concern arises for financial digitization. 

Europe is at a crossroads between fragmentation and decline and decisive progress towards deeper political integration needed to strengthen its common external security, its social cohesion and the competitiveness of its firms.

Against these scenarios, the conference calls for contributions that analyze the nature of these risks and their policy implications. Topics of interest, without being exhaustive, concern

  1. Growth and business cycle analysis
  2. Quantitative Finance and Econometrics
  3. New risks and financial stability
  4. Migration, trade  and the labor market
  5. Climate change and energy policies
  6. European issues
  7. The economic, social and political impact of COVID-19 and the risks of future epidemics
