Macroprudential regulation and policy

Joint Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Bank of Korea (BoK) conference on "Macroprudential regulation and policy", Seoul, Korea, 16-18 January 2011.

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Bank of Korea (BoK) jointly organised a conference on macroprudential regulation and policy in Seoul, Korea, on 16-18 January 2011. The conference aimed to bring academics together with researchers at central banks and other public institutions to present and discuss ongoing theoretical and empirical work in the field. In response to their call for papers, the organisers received more than 75 submissions from central banks, public agencies, supranational organisations and academic institutions. From these, a selection committee from the BIS and the BoK chose 12 papers organised around the following four themes: (i) systemic risk; (ii) financial system procyclicality; (iii) macroeconomic impact studies and early warning indicators; and (iv) effective implementation of macroprudential policy.

The papers presented at the conference were published as BIS Papers No 60 in December 2011.
