International Finance and Money

The global crises have shattered the paradigm of contemporary macroeconomics that had prevailed since the late 1980s. The questions explored by our researchers focus on the:

  • influence of monetary policy on the stability of the banking system and the resilience of the real economy, inflation targeting strategies and their institutional context within emerging economies
  • interaction between financial liberalization, capital flows and financial crises.dynamics of monetary and financial integration at global and regional levels.
  • dynamics of monetary and financial integration at global and regional levels.
Corporate Finance and Governance

The financial performance of companies is a key issue in a context of increased competition and the internationalization of business organizations. Moreover, given their societal impact, companies are now required to comply with new standards to meet the concerns of the actors they interact with. More broadly, researchers in this sub-theme address questions related to the functioning of financial systems and companies, and their role and place in the economy.

Auditing and Accounting

Operational risk management is critical in helping companies comply with increasingly demanding standards and limit the risk of losses. In the fields of banking and insurance, operational risk control is all the more important with regard to financial deregulation and increasingly complex financial arrangements. For this reason, part of the work carried out by our researchers analyses how the mobilization of stakeholders helps to create and maintain a culture of operational risk in the financial sector.

Finally, on subjects related more to accounting, the research team studies the link between investor confidence, the quality of financial information and IFRS standards.
