Prepared for the Next Crisis? The Costs and Benefits of Financial Regulation

Norges Bank, Oslo, 11-12 November 2019

The global financial crisis precipitated a wave of regulatory reform to enhance the resilience of financial systems.  A decade later, there is now debate about whether more, less or different regulation is needed going forward.  A detailed understanding of the effectiveness, transmission as well as the intended and unintended effects of regulatory policies is therefore crucial in order to properly understand the costs and benefits of alternative regulatory regimes so as to inform both the public debate and policy making.

This 1.5 day workshop aims to bring together academics and policy makers working on issues related to financial regulation. We especially encourage submissions of empirical research underpinned by microdata. The workshop will focus on high-quality research on the assessment of financial regulation and policy, with a particular but not exclusive interest in the following areas:

  • Capital and liquidity requirements and the impact on bank behavior
  • The nature and regulation of systemic risk
  • Evidence on the intended and unintended consequences of financial regulation
  • Substitution and complementarity between bank and market finance
  • The effects of non-bank financial regulation in financial systems
  • Governance responses to financial regulation at financial institutions
  • Shadow bank responses to bank regulation
  • Changes in competition, structure, and conduct of financial systems across jurisdictions
  • The interdependence of politics, policy-making, and regulation
  • The impact of financial regulation on households and firms
  • International coordination on financial regulation


We are happy and honoured to announce a keynote speech by Eric Rosengren.

Local committee: Scott Frame, Ragnar Juelsrud, Michael Koetter, Kasper Roszbach and Bent Vale
