1. Motivation

Several years after the outbreak of the international financial crisis monetary policy still finds itself in a process of reorientation. Important open question concern the appropriate institutional framework for central banking, the interaction of monetary and fiscal policy, the role of uncertainty and learning for monetary policy, and the relation between monetary policy and banking supervision. The aim of the summer school is to consider these various issues and assess their policy implications.

The Summer School addresses PhD students and Post-docs with a strong academic record and a keen interest in policy issues, and young members of policy institutions such as central banks, ministries, and international organisations. The size of the group is limited to 25 participants.

The lectures combine a thorough theoretical and methodical underpinning with a clear policy orientation on “how to put theory into practice”. Participants are expected to actively engage in the debates on the topics discussed in class. Participants will be hosted in the guest house of the Institute (“ Haus Weltclub”).
