Financialisation has pervasive effects on our societies, and the EU-funded FESSUD project seeks to analyse and understand those effects: it probes the interrelationship of financialisation and financial crisis and to develop policy agendas to make finance better serve economic, social and environmental needs.
‘Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development: Debates from a policy perspective’ (28th September) will be concerned with the policy agendas towards sustainability – economic, financial, social, and environmental.
Agendas covered include regulation of the financial sector, macroeconomic policies, financialisation and sustainability: environment and development and alternative forms of finance to better serve social well-being.
The conference includes sessions in which FESSUD researchers present and debate their policy recommendations, panel discussion on the future of finance, and key note speaker.
