Financialisation has pervasive effects on our societies, and the FESSUD project has been analysing and seeking to understand those effects, to probe the interrelationship of financialisation and financial crisis and to develop policy agendas.
This conference had over two days of concentrated presentations and lively discussion of nearly 50 papers. It focused on understanding the causes and consequences of the financial crisis and the role of financialisation in the financial crisis. It was concerned with the policy agendas towards the financial stability through regulation and macroeconomic policies.
These themes were pursued through sessions bringing forth some of the research findings of the FESSUD project, two keynote addresses and eight contributed papers.
