CFP: “Challenges of International Banking Regulation after 1945”

“The Challenges of International Banking Regulation and Supervision after 1945” is a conference jointly organized by the European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) e.V. and the ERSC-funded project, ‘The Development of International Financial Regulation and Supervision (1961-1982),’ at the University of Glasgow; it will take place on January 16-17, 2014, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The organizers explain:
Financial regulation and supervision has gained prominence in the public debate over the past few years. The aim of this conference is to contextualise discussions about financial regulation and supervision since World War II, in particular by providing an historical perspective to current debates. Conference organisers welcome proposals investigating the obstacles and challenges to international banking regulation and supervision after 1945. The aim of the conference is to bring together different approaches—legal, economic, political science / political economy, historical—in order to enrich and widen the debate about international regulation and supervision. 
For a fuller exposition of the conference goals, please see the complete call for papers.
      Potential contributors interested in participating should submit a paper proposal not exceeding one page and a recent CV as email attachments by September 30, 2013, to Dr. Emmanuel Mourlon-Druol (Emmanuel.Mourlon-Druol@glasgow.ac.uk) using ‘EABH / Glasgow Conference’ in the email subject line.
     Final papers will be circulated in advance of the conference and should be around 6,000 words. The organizers plan to publish the proceedings of the conference.
