The International Workshop on Financial System Architecture and Stability (IWFSAS) provides a forum for academic researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss current issues related to the structure and design of financial systems and their impact on macro-financial stability and sustainable economic development.

The eighth IWFSAS conference offers leading academics, practitioners, and policymakers the opportunity to discuss innovative research on a range of topics related to banking regulation, supervision and crisis management aimed to preserve financial stability during a period of recurrent crises. Banking crises can have devastating effects on the economy, leading to financial instability and bank runs, job losses, and widespread economic hardship.

This year’s IWFSAS meeting will be hosted by the Centre for European Policies Studies (CEPS) in collaboration with Bayes Business School (formerly Cass), the Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA), the Gustavson School of Business at the University of Victoria and the National Bank of Belgium (NBB).
