CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS: 2021 Sixth Biennial IADI Research Conference "Navigating the New Normal for Financial Stability, Deposit Insurance and Bank Resolution"

The International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI) invites research papers for its 6th Biennial Research Conference to be hosted by the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland and held virtually during the week of 10-14 May 2021.

The theme for the Research Conference is “Navigating the New Normal for Financial Stability, Deposit Insurance and Bank Resolution”. This year’s theme takes into account how international crises continue to shape the landscape for financial stability, deposit insurance and bank resolution.  A decade past the global financial crisis, the world’s financial system is in the midst of a new series of shocks and challenges emanating from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This IADI Biennial Research Conference will provide a forum to take stock of and explore the implications of these developments as well as examine other issues influencing financial stability, deposit insurance and bank resolution.  

For the Research Paper sessions, the Program Committee invites theoretical and empirical papers of relevance to deposit insurers and resolution authorities. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. COVID-19 impacts on bank risks, deposit insurance and resolution
  2. Crisis management and bank restructuring
  3. Fintech issues (e.g. e-money, digital currency and open banking)
  4. Cyber-security risks
  5. Climate change and impacts on financial stability and resolution

In addition to the above-mentioned topics, the organisers may consider research in the general areas of bank supervision, regulation, resolution frameworks and any other issues concerning financial stability.

The Conference will be conducted on a virtual basis,  spread over a number of days and will include presentations by authors of selected research papers and panel discussions by  practitioners. Each research paper will be addressed by discussants. Ample time will be provided for audience participation.

Research papers and panel presentations will be posted on the IADI Members Only website, accessible to registered participants only, subject to the permission of authors, Research Conference proceedings will be published.
