Call for papers - Workshop "International finance: do exchange rates still matter?"


November 16th, 2018

Research axis “Sustainable and International Finance” of the European Research Group (GdRe) Money, Banking, Finance

organized by LEM - CNRS (UMR 9221), University of Lille

Venue: University of Lille, Cité Scientifique (Villeneuve d’Ascq)


The persistence of global imbalances raises some concerns about resurgence of protectionist tendencies while the gradual tightening of monetary policy in some advanced economies raises fears about a sudden stop in capital inflows in emerging market economies. These issues are related to the role of exchange rates in determining international trade and capital flows. Are exchange rates more important than trade policy in correcting trade imbalances? Do they influence foreign direct investment? Do floating exchange rates help current account adjustments? Do they give full monetary autonomy? To what extent do exchange rates affect stock markets and bond markets?

Topics include:

- Exchange rates and competitiveness, international trade and foreign direct investment

- The effects of exchange rate changes and tariffs on international trade

- The role of the exchange rate regime in current account adjustments

- The valuation effects of changes in exchange rates - Policy trilemma vs. dilemma

- The degree of exchange rate pass-through - Exchange rates and financial markets
