FSR to host discussions on the Future of the International Economic Governance and Market Regulation
On 14-16 April, the FSR is pleased to be hosting and co-organising the International Economic Governance and Market Regulation workshop as part of an ambitious initiative conceived in cooperation with the Chair Governance & Regulation of the Foundation Paris- Dauphine.
This event is designed to bring academics together to analyse and debate the dynamics of global, international, economic governance and the regulation of markets. This discussion between scholars of various horizons aims to acknowledge the open, contested character of the broad questions raised by the ever changing nature global institutions. Rather than embracing a macroeconomic or macro-institutional approach to analyse how the global economy works, the workshops will promote a micro, bottom-up perspective that would start from the analysis of individual agents, whether market participants or regulators and analyse how they adopt rules, bend them and act upon them.
The ultimate goal is the composition of a “Handbook on International Economic Governance and Market Regulation”. This handbook will be published by Oxford University Press and will cover the political debates and analytical stakes raised by the trans-nationalisation of regulatory capacities of specific sectors. The topics covered will include communication and media, energy, transportation, finance and insurance, as well as transversal regulatory issues.
Participants contributing to the initiative include Paul Schiff Berman (George Washington University), Bernard Hoekman (EUI), Horatia Muir-Watt (Sciences Po), Barry Weingast (Stanford University).
