Main events

Three international seminars were held in London, Hamburg and Bratislava, supported by the grant from the Regional Studies Association (RSA):





Seminar 1

London, UK

5th September 2011


Seminar 2

Hamburg, Germany

3-4 May 2012


Seminar 3

Bratislava, Slovakia

16-17 May 2013



Each seminar had a particular focus (London: conceptual issues of finance and post-socialism; Hamburg: global finance in action; Bratislava: finance in transition and lessons for the future). Their aim was to encourage an open discussion and understanding between specialists in finance and post-socialist studies, whilst at the same time engaging with, and learning from, practitioners and policy-makers. For this reason a carefully selected list of key speakers was put together including:

  • Leading academics on finance
  • Leading academics on post-socialism
  • Policy-makers and practitioners working in the area of finance and/or in post-socialist contexts (central bankers, financial regulators, finance ministers, investment bankers, financial analysts, etc.).

Other events

In addition to the above, a series of related events were organised by the members of the network, including:

  • Specialised gateway “Financing the region – current and future challenges” at the RSA international conference in Newcastle upon Tyne, April 2011;
  • Specialised session “The geopolitics of European financial landscapes” at the RGS-IBG International conference in London; September 2011.

Ultimately, the aim of the network is to inform theoretical and policy debates via Publications.
