On 7 and 8 December 2017 the European University Institute and Leiden University’s Hazelhoff Centre for Financial Law jointly organise a PhD workshop titled 'Beyond Bank Resolution: Resolution and its Frontiers'. The workshop takes place in Leiden.

In the European Union (EU), a framework governing the recovery and resolution of banks and investment firms is in place. However, financial institutions other than banks also play an essential role in the functioning of the financial system. Therefore, policymakers at EU as well as the national level have shifted their attention now to the question of how frameworks for the recovery and resolution of institutions other than banks, including central counterparties, pension funds and insurance companies, can best be designed. These frameworks would create a whole new area of law in the EU but touch on many areas of substantive law, including insolvency law and competition law – some already harmonised at European level, others only partially. In this PhD workshop economists and legal scholars shall jointly discuss the challenges related to supervision and resolution of financial institutions more broadly, as well as their impact on the stability of the financial system as a whole.

The workshop is for PhD students and Post-docs of law, economics and related disciplines, who will present their current research-projects that relate to recent or future European legal developments and challenges in the field of resolution law in the broader context. Two topical keynotes from experts in the field will complement the workshop.

Application Procedure

Researchers who are interested in participating in the workshop shall submit a full paper or an extended abstract related to the workshop topic via e-mail to Agnieszka Smoleńska (agnieszka.smolenska@EUI.eu) or Lynette Janssen (l.g.a.janssen@law.leidenuniv.nl) no later than September 1, 2017. The decision of including papers for presentation at the workshop will be communicated by September 15, 2017.
