– Regulatory supervision and enforcement: design and challenges.
– Effects of low or negative interest rates on banks’ profitability and funding.
– The interaction of market discipline and regulatory standards.
– Resolution mechanisms (bail-in and deposit insurance) and systemic risk.
– The impact of bail-in on banks’ cost of funding and banks’ risk-taking.
– Solvency and liquidity risk.
– The effects of macro-prudential and unconventional monetary policy on financial stability.
– The real effects of banking regulation.
– The shadow banking system’s implications for financial intermediation and regulation.
– The potential role of securitization in a re-regulated banking system.
– The challenge of non-performing loans (NPLs).
– The role of derivatives within the banking system.
– Banks versus financial markets in Europe and the implications of the Capital Market Union for the banking system.
– The relationship between sovereign and bank risk.

Quality research papers on other banking topics will be also considered.
