The on-going challenges of managing the consequences of the global financial crisis have generated much academic and policy debate. Of major concern is the stability of the financial system and the importance of a stable financial system for sustainability in finance. In this conference, we aim to bring together researchers to present and discuss this issue from various perspectives, with research based in macro-, micro- and institutional economics as well as corporate finance and financial markets.
The conference will be held in Cape Town at the Bellville-campus of the University of Stellenbosch Business School. Accommodation is available on campus and there are various hotels in the Bellville area. During the conference, a bus shuttle service between selected conference hotels and the campus will be provided. Participants are expected to arrive on Wednesday, May 29 for the opening reception. The presentations will begin on Thursday morning, May 30 and end in the afternoon of the following day. A conference dinner featuring traditional South African cuisine will be held on Thursday evening.
