The Banca d'Italia and the CEPR are pleased to announce a call for papers on "Closing the gaps: the future of stabilization policies after the COVID-19 pandemic". The Conference will be held on 17-18 June 2021. We expect the conference to take place online; should the evolution of the pandemic allow it, we will host the event at the Banca d'Italia premises in Rome. The aim of the conference is to foster the debate on implications for monetary policy and the other stabilization policies, of the prolonged period of low interest rates, low growth, and low inflation in major advanced economies, taking also into account the economic effects of the evolving pandemic crisis.
Proposals should be submitted by March 31, 2021, according to the Call for papers.
