The Macroeconomic Risk Chair aims to promote the development and dissemination of research into a number of areas linked to the issue of macroeconomic risk, the macroeconomic effects of uncertainty, the financial and macroeconomic contagion effects of crises and the long-term risks.

This event is organized by the International Macroeconomics Chair, which is the result of a partnership between the Banque de France and PSE. Sharing the same vision about scientific needs on international issues, these two organisations joint their efforts to build a chair with the objective of fostering the development of research on the financial & monetary international system, and in international Macroeconomics.
