Conference Programme

In an increasingly integrated global economy, assessing the propagation of shocks is becoming of major interest to the international economic cycles analysis. It is indeed challenging to evaluate the impact of certain types of shocks on global business cycles and to disentangle the various transmission channels, such as trade flows, financial linkages or confidence effects. This conference will focus on empirical and theoretical contributions providing an assessment of various spillover effects at a global level and new perspectives on structural analysis, forecasting and economic policy design and assessment.


Topics include:

  • The evaluation of changing trade and financial linkages across countries
  • The macroeconomic effects of swings in commodity prices
  • The cyclical relationships between emerging and advanced countries
  • The integration of financial spillovers in global macro and econometric models
  • Theoretical and empirical analyses of the transmission of monetary and fiscal policy across countries

The event is hosted by the Banque de France, and sponsored by the EABCN in collaboration with the Banque de France Chair at the Paris School of Economics and the Pierre Werner Chair Programme of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute.
