Announcing 2016 Financial Institutions, Regulation & Corporate Governance (FIRCG) Conference Online Proceedings on SSRN
In cooperation with University of Melbourne, the Financial Economics Network (FEN) is pleased to announce the 2016 Financial Institutions, Regulation & Corporate Governance (FIRCG) Conference. The proceedings are available to all users at no charge and contain abstracts of publicly available papers presented at the conference with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.
The University of Melbourne’s Financial Institutions, Regulation and Corporate Governance (FIRCG) research group held its inaugural two day conference titled “Bitcoins, hedge funds and tennis balls” on 22-23 January 2016 at Melbourne Business School. The conference – which was a result of the close collaboration between Melbourne Business School and the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne – aimed to discuss issues that affect financial institutions, corporate governance and risk management. These issues are increasingly global in nature, making the ability to connect and collaborate internationally increasingly important, especially for a nation like Australia, whose economy is one of the most open in the world and highly sensitive to economic changes elsewhere.

The Immigration Policy Lab (IPL) assesses and proposes policies and programs focused on the integration of immigrants and refugees to host countries throughout the world. Its research program is premised on the observation that we know very little about whether policies currently in place achieve their stated goals and actually foster the integration of immigrants into the host societies. IPL researchers rely on techniques that leverage experimental and quasi-experimental methods (such as micro-level randomized field experiments and natural experiments) with common study protocols to quantify the social and economic returns to immigration policies. With branches at Stanford University and the University of Zurich, IPL has affiliated faculty at Berkeley, Dartmouth, London School of Economics, Princeton and Uppsala. The IPL is committed to systematic evaluations of policies that meet high scientific standards yet also inform the policy-making community.
