The 2011 conference


As its Madrid (2009) and Cambridge (2010) predecessors, this conference will gather financial economists, financial and economic historians interested in the long term changes in European financial markets.
Its new feature is that it aims at organizing a network of researchers willing to understand the financial history of Europe considered as a whole rather than as the sum of individual national financial markets. That network will in particular enhance methodological convergence between scholars from finance to history in order to systematically reconstruct and analyse stock-exchange data. A by-product of the project is the creation of a pan-European historical database of securities markets. The workshop will make a state of the art of research in stock market history and launch collaborative research projects at the European level.
The six main topics will be: financial integration, initial public offerings (IPOs), microstructures of financial markets, corporate governance, emerging markets, derivative markets. On each topic, a state of the art will be presented and discussed in plenary session, and a workshop will be organized (with 3 workshops in parallel sessions each afternoon) in order to organize future collaborative work.

  • Access to morning sessions is free. Admission is required for afternoon sessions.
