The sources of stability and instability – Evidence from the past and present

Hosted by the House of Finance, this conference sets one’s sight on combining current and historical perspectives on international bank networks and how they contribute to, or inhibit, systemic stability.

This conference will be held on the 22th April 2021 at 1-5pm (CET) – in conjunction with the Leibniz Institute for financial research (SAFE) and the Institute for Banking and Financial History (IBF).

Since nowadays networks can allow us to reinforce stability by providing a more resilient system in case of an external shock, they could also in the worst case, generate and propagate a liquidity shock through interbank networks, therefore this event will address issues such as:

  • financial contagions, like the financial crisis 1930,
  • the rise and fall of interbank markets,
  • national and international clearing and settlement systems                           
  • and the emergence and supervisions of systemically important banks.    

This event mainly will be of interest to all those concerned with the resilience and security of international banking, entrants will include academics, researchers from central banks as well as international financial institutions.

The conference is currently being held by Prof. Catherine Schenk Ph.D. and is part of the Visiting Professorship of Financial History at Goethe University, endowed by Metzler Bank and the Friedrich Flick Förderungsstiftung.
