Finance, Law, and Economics

About us

Finance, Law, and Economics are inherently interrelated disciplines. The Finance, Law and Economics Working Group brings economists, lawyers and practioners together to integrate Macroeconomics, Finance and legal studies in order to understand issues of financial stability, financial market reform and the future of the banking and payments systems.


Introduction

Finance, law, and economics are interrelated disciplines. This working group is a forum for the discussion of the areas of study these disciplines share. Young scholars, academics, practitioners, and policy advisors are invited to contribute.

The 2007/8 financial crisis has driven home the importance of interdisciplinary research in finance, law, and economics. Too many regulators and academics hid in their respective regulatory or disciplinary ‘silos’ and failed to anticipate the disastrous market slumps, given the high social cost of the global crisis!

Finance, Law, and Economics Working Group

The Finance, Law, and Economics Working Group creates a forum for a wide-ranging conversation among young scholars interested in interdisciplinary research in finance, economics, and law. Questions we explore include, but are not limited to, how do legal regulations create markets, why did finance come about in the 1960s, and what does the macro-economic toolkit look like since central banks responded to the financial crisis with unconventional measures? In studying these and related questions we employ legal, economic, and social science methodologies as analytical tools. The primary goals of our discussions are to better understand the driving forces of financial globalization, to unpack assumptions made in policy proposals, and to describe the political economy of finance.

Workshops, Meetings, and Webinars

The Working Group regularly meets online. Students and researchers (Master/Ph.D./Post Doc) from all disciplines are welcome to join us. Moreover, we host workshops and events in order to meet in person at least once a year, which is fundamental to keep in touch and foster collaboration among our members. Participants have the possibility of getting funding.
