Global Research Forum on International Macroeconomics and Finance

November 12-13, 2020

Federal Reserve Board, Washington, D.C.

Call for papers

The fifth biennial Global Research Forum on International Macroeconomics and Finance, organised by the European Central Bank, Federal Reserve Board and Federal Reserve Bank of New York, will be held at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C. on 12-13 November 2020.

The purpose of the Forum is to promote the discussion of frontier research on empirical and theoretical issues in international finance, global banking and open economy macroeconomics, with a focus on relevance for monetary policy and financial stability.

This year's Forum will focus on the new challenges facing central banks worldwide owing to profound changes in the international economic landscape. We therefore invite the submission of papers that present empirical or theoretical contributions with an international focus and that address, but are not limited to, the following issues:

  • evidence, drivers and implications of global financial disintegration or fragmentation;
  • advances in the measurement of international linkages and global financial flows;
  • potential implications of a more diversified international monetary system;
  • implications of global stablecoins and central bank digital currencies for major currencies;
  • international cooperation and coordination, monetary policy, financial regulation and official liquidity provision.

Further circulation of this call for papers is encouraged, especially to early career PhD economists.

Submission deadline
Complete manuscripts (which will be given priority) and extended abstracts should be submitted electronically in PDF format to by 1 June 2020. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 1 July 2020. The travel expenses of presenting authors will be reimbursed, but participants from central banks and other official institutions will be expected to cover their own expenses.
