“Is there a Crisis of Financial Globalization? Effects and Challenges on Financial Institutions Today and in the Future”

Financial globalization is characterized by intensive cross-border financial and payment flows, greater risk-sharing through a broader array of financial instruments, an increasing share of crossborder holdings of assets and an increasing international profile of financial markets, market players and institutions. The ongoing financial and economic crisis will without doubt affect these trends of financial globalization.

These effects and especially the challenges and possible solutions for financial institutions are the focus of the International Summer School 2009 at Montabaur Castle. The Summer School will take place from July 11 to July 19, 2009 and is organized by the Institute of International Business Studies / Steinbeis University Berlin in cooperation with the Academy of German Cooperatives (ADG). Further academic partners are the Riga Graduate School of Law, and CBL International.

The event aims at all people with an academic and practical interest in the international effects of the crisis on financial institutions, particularly addressing professionals from the area of Banking and Finance as well as students of various disciplines such as economics, business administration and social studies. The Summer School will exclusively be conducted in English.
