The project brings together scholars from different disciplines (economic and geography) and geographies (both within and beyond Europe) to complement, extend and deepen existing analyses of the European financial sector.
This project aims to answer the following research questions:
What is the quantitative and qualitative access to finance of different economic actors in Europe? How does this access relate to different geographic areas and socio-economic characteristics?
What are the connections between financial crises, global financial competition, and too-big-to-save megabanks?
How viable are smaller, locally based financial intermediaries as sustainable vehicle for carrying out economically-productive loans and for making financial transaction services widely available?
Can cross-border capital flows unbalance core-periphery relations?
How have the inequality dynamics shaped the changing structure of the European financial system?
What concrete policy measures – both in terms of regulation and alternative financial system design – make finance work for all segments of society?
The project will span two years and will include a series of roundtable discussions and polcy related writing.
