International Institute for Cooperative at HEC Montréal and the University of Victoria’s Gustavson School of Business and the Department of Economics are pleased to present the 2017 edition of the International Workshop on Financial System Architecture and Stability (IWFSAS).

IWFSAS aims at providing a forum for academic researchers and policy makers to discuss issues related to the structure and design of financial systems and their impact on growth and financial stability. While the specific theme may vary from year to year, the overall objective of this annual workshop is to facilitate discussions of high-quality policy-relevant research papers that inform our understanding of how various financial sector policies can affect the stability of the financial system and the overall economy, both nationally and globally.

The IWFSAS 2017 is dedicated to discussing diversity, stability and sustainable development in financial systems.

The keynote speaker is Professor Anjan V. Thakor, John E. Simon Professor of Finance, Olin Business School, Washington University in St Louis.
