February 2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the Central Bank of Ireland.  As part of the 75th commemorative programme, we will host a symposium  to discuss financial globalisation on 2 February 2018 at our Dockland campus.


  • Philip R. Lane, Governor, Central Bank of Ireland
  • François Villeroy de Galhau, Governor, Banque de France
  • Sharon Donnery, Deputy Governor, Central Banking, Central Bank of Ireland
  • Brad Setser, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
  • Linda Goldberg, Senior Vice President, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • Susan Lund, Partner, McKinsey & Company and Leader of McKinsey Global Institute
  • Gian Maria Milesi-Ferretti, Deputy Director, Research Department, IMF
  • Hyun Song Shin, Economic Advisor and Head of Research, BIS


Following a wave of globalisation during the mid-2000s, the global financial crisis and European sovereign debt crisis highlighted how shocks can be transmitted internationally because of tighter global financial linkages. Greater understanding of the determinants of financial globalisation is therefore important for policymakers and researchers to mitigate risks to the global financial system, and safeguard domestic macroeconomic and financial conditions.

More details on the agenda will be published here when available.


Registration for this event is by invitation only.
