Global Policy, Global Institutions and Global Development (A theme to honour the memory of our colleague late Dr Alvaro Angeriz)

Date: 24-25 June 2013
Venue: Francis Bancroft Building, Mile End Campus
Queen Mary University of London


The Global Political Economy Network (GPEN) of the Centre for Globalisation Research (CGR) announces its 3rd Annual Conference 2013 to be held at School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London on 24-25 June 2013.

Background: This is the 3rd GPEN conference which we are dedicating in memory of our colleague Dr. Alvaro Angeriz who passed away on 11 January 2012. This conference theme will be a fitting tribute to him, given his interest on policy relevant issues in development.

The GPEN conference serves as a forum for people interested in global political economy issues. Given the economic slowdown in advanced countries and trade collapse in emerging market and developing countries, the focus has shifted towards policy coordination with regard to fiscal stimulus or financial regulation when monetary policy has become less effective. There is still little consensus about the effects of different policies – either within countries or between countries. The role of institutions whether national or global may play a big role in explaining this variation in the process of development.

Recent analyses have suggested that global financial liberalisation has led to strong shifts in costs of, access to and returns to finance in different parts of the World, whose effects on development have not fully been explored. The role of global policies and institutions when markets are more integrated remain at the heart of current debate. We encourage submissions from academics, practitioners, and central bank and government officials all over the world to present and discuss research results about the role of global economic and financial policies. Emphasis will be placed on the developments in the emerging market and developing economies in this year’s theme. Theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers are all welcome.
