The purpose of this conference is to bring together leading academics and policymakers working in the area of macroprudential policy, with a view to both taking stock of the progress that has been made in building the policy framework over the past decade, while also identifying gaps and priority areas for further policy development and research.

The conference is organised by Professor Prasanna Gai (University of Auckland) and Professor David Aikman (King’s Business School).

We will be publishing the proceedings of the event in a new Research Handbook of Macroprudential Policy, to be published by Elgar. Sir Paul Tucker has agreed to write a foreword for the book.
