Columbia University/Bank Policy Institute 2022 Research Conference

Columbia University

The Bank Policy Institute and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs invite the submission of papers for our annual conference on Bank Regulation and Supervision. At this stage, we are planning an in-person conference in 2022, but we are prepared to change to a hybrid/virtual format if needed.  The purpose of the conference is to bring together academics, market participants, and policymakers to discuss the latest research on the design and impacts of bank regulation.


This year’s conference will focus on two areas of significant risk and opportunity for banks: climate and digitalization and their implications for regulation and supervision.  We invite papers that explore all aspects of these topics including but not limited to:

  • Measurement of companies’ and portfolios’ GHG emissions and carbon footprints.
  • Modeling of climate-related risks for firms, borrowers, sovereign and municipalities.
  • Impact of climate change on lending and financial markets.
  • Lessons for climate financial risks from historical instances of industrial change.
  • The impact of digitalization on competition in the provision of financial services.
  • Risks and benefits of stablecoins and special fintech bank charters.
  • Technological innovations in financial and payment systems: implications for financial inclusion and market structure.

We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers.
