This free webinar is organised by the Corporate and Financial Law Research Group of the University of Glasgow and the School of Law at Edinburgh University.
The global pandemic has prompted a series of unprecedented interventions by governments and regulatory agencies around the world. In the medium term COVID-19 might prove the watershed moment of this decade and beyond in a number of contexts. These include a re-orientation of economic and monetary policy, the future shape of financial markets, debt sustainability and preservation of financial stability, and the development of corporate governance norms to serve social growth and the green economy.
This full-day webinar will examine what these changes might bring.
It will specifically focus on the COVID-19 response in Europe (encompassing the eurozone, rest of the EU, and the UK). Eminent speakers and leading experts will consider the economic and legal aspects of the pandemic response, how these challenge today’s dominant paradigms in law and the economy, and their implications for the future.
Speakers will include:
- Peter Mathieson, Principal & Vice Chancellor, University of Edinburgh
- Iain MacNeil, Alexander Stone Chair of Commercial Law, University of Glasgow
- Emilios Avgouleas, Chair in International Banking Law and Finance, University of Edinburgh
- John Tsoukalas, Head of Economics, Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow
