Risk & Reform
|In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the question remains: where do we go from here?
This Seminar provides an opportunity for experts within BU to highlight their ongoing work or research, identify possible opportunities for new research or other initiatives, and engage in open dialogue that contributes to the educational experience of all involved.
In some instances, it may be appropriate for presenters to apply for funding from the Center to move a proposal forward (please visit the Center’s RFP page for details).
The broad topic for the current Seminar series is financial reform in response to the financial crisis. This can include a number of issues, such as regulatory reform, EU policy, capital markets, development finance or an array of other related topics.
Each Seminar is led by one or more presenter with expertise in finance, financial regulation, banking, economics, law or a related field. Presenters are primarily faculty from across BU’s campus, though on occasion outside experts may lead a discussion.
Presenters will introduce the topic to be addressed and provide a 15-20 minute overview, which will be followed by an open discussion about the issues raised.
Prior to each Seminar, presenters will provide a short, one paragraph, abstract elaborating on the topic (this will be used, in part, for promoting individual seminars). Following the seminar, the presenter will contribute a 2-4 page policy brief outlining (1) major issues, (2) snapshots of policy recommendations, and/or (3) a basic outline or proposal for how the issue can be better addressed or researched. If the presenter is highlighting ongoing research or has more in-depth work product, working papers or similar materials can be used in substitution of a policy brief.
