Macro Workshop 2014

      Istanbul, Turkey

The Istanbul School of Central Banking organizes Macro Workshop 2014 on 2-3 June, 2014 in Istanbul. The workshop is designed for researchers and economists from central banks, policy institutions and leading scholars from universities who are interested in the recent developments of academic literature in macroeconomics and central banking.


Istanbul School of Central Banking (İMB)

In a highly interdependent global economy, rethinking macroeconomic policy, sharing experiences and best practices among policy makers, practitioners and academics are vital to explore solutions to economic and financial challenges. New communication venues are essential to provide discussion platforms for this joint work. The İMB intends to create an ideal setting for such a platform.

The İMB emphasizes collaborative effort to promote frontier research and to develop human capital in economics and finance, primarily in central banking. Therefore, the İMB intends to engage in capacity building through technical cooperation with peer central banks, international institutions and universities.

The İMB welcomes scholars and central bankers in Istanbul to meet, exchange views and ideas, give lectures and study contemporary topics.
