April 10-12, 2014, IAȘI – ROMANIA
The international conference “MONETARY, BANKING AND FINANCIAL ISSUES IN CENTRAL AND EASTERN EU MEMBER COUNTRIES: HOW CAN CENTRAL AND EASTERN EU MEMBERS OVERCOME THE CURRENT ECONOMIC CRISIS?” is supported by the European Union under the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme - Key Activity 1.
The Conference is hosted by “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iaşi (Romania), Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and is organized within a Jean Monnet project financed by the European Union.
The main objective of the conference is to promote the enhancement of knowledge and debates on the role and the place of financial and monetary policies in the process of relaunching the European economy and obtaining long term economic growth in the European Union in the aftermath of the international financial crisis.
In order to achieve this objective the conference aims at reuniting young and also experienced academic researchers and specialists, both from Romania and abroad (other European Union member states and neighboring and candidate states) in order to provide the necessary background for the development of a constructive debate on this theme.
This event also aims at identifying new research topics related to the theme of the conference that could contribute to the development of macroeconomic and financial solutions that will help Central and Eastern EU member states overcome the economic crisis, while also stimulating the organization of similar events on this important theme at other European universities (from European Union’s countries, the neighboring and the candidate states).
During the three days of the conference the researchers will have the opportunity to present their papers and bring them up for debate both in plenary sessions and in panel discussions, thus allowing their research to be scrutinized not only by fellow academic researchers but also by practitioners such as business representatives and policy makers.
The contributors will be encouraged to approach one of the three main topics of the conference (but not limited to):
During the conference a round table debate will be organized. Students from all the major Romanian universities and also from other European universities will be encouraged to submit their essays on the theme of the conference. These essays will then be revised by the scientific committee for academic soundness and presented at the conference during the roundtable. This will allow young students to explore a major European integration topic and also to present their work in front of an endorsed audience, allowing them to take their first contact with the academic world and probably encourage them to deepen their European integration studies. Also these essays will be posted on the conference web-site to be disseminated, being a great tool for information especially for the more uninitiated audience.
The students will be able to interact with new ideas and grasp the importance of correlating academic research with field experience in order to produce valuable research materials that can be used both by practitioners and also to enhance the knowledge on the role of the financial and monetary policies in obtaining long term economic growth in the European Union, a very important aspect of the integration process.
