Event Description

The conference will address many of the central FESSUD issues, such as the ways in which the growth and performance of economies in the last 30 years have been dependent on the characteristics of the processes of financialisation; how has financialisation impacted on the achievement of specific economic, social, and environmental objectives?; the nature of the relationship between financialisation and the sustainability of the financial system, economic development and the environment?; the lessons to be drawn from the crisis about the nature and impacts of financialisation? ; what are the requisites of a financial system able to support a process of sustainable development, broadly conceived?’.

It will include sessions in which FESSUD researchers present and debate their research findings, key note speakers on financialisation and reforms of the financial system, and submitted papers.

Keynote speakers include Prof. Bob Jessop (http://www.lancs.ac.uk/ias/profiles/bob-jessop) Prof. Stephany Griffiths-Jones (http://stephanygj.net/) Prof. Brigitte Young (http://www.uni-muenster.de/IfPol/personen/young.html)
