Presentation

This year's selected theme is wide, as it covers both domestic and cross border issues. The current global macroeconomic situation in advanced countries is actually particular, with very low interest rates, severe activity slowdown, and the threat of trade and currency wars that may spill over to the developing world.

Although all submissions will be considered, papers devoted to international macro issues will be favored, in particular papers using a multi-country approach to address international market integration and its consequences on the implementation of economic policies (monetary and fiscal) and / or structural reforms of the international financial architecture, world trade networks or the labor market. The objective of this workshop is to understand how strong(er) or loose(r) market integration affects the international transmission of policies and may improve countries’ macroeconomic performance to serve as a driving force for the economic recovery.
