EUROFRAME Conference 2022: Call for Papers

EUROFRAME conference 2022: Macroeconomic policy challenges in pandemic times

The 18th EUROFRAME Conference will focus on the macroeconomic policy challenges for European economies and advanced economies more widely in pandemic times. Since the Covid-19 pandemic emerged in early 2020, fiscal and monetary policies have provided support to an unprecedented extent in peace times. In late 2021, increasing inflation, accelerated by bottlenecks in the supply-side as output recovers, raises challenges for policymakers. How should fiscal and monetary policies be adjusted to ensure a sound recovery without generating imbalances? Public debts are now higher than they were before the Covid-19 crisis, while interest rates remain historically low. In the longer term, how can public debt sustainability be ensured, while addressing the need for green investments to tackle climate change?

We seek both empirical and theoretical policy-relevant papers. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

• Macroeconomic impact of economic policies implemented in the Covid-19 crisis
• Monetary policy and real interest rates after the pandemic
• Redesigning fiscal rules in the EU
• Outlook for public debt and interest rates in advanced countries
• Macroeconomic effects of the Next Generation EU programme
• Short-term and long-term effects of Covid-19 on the supply side
• Reallocation effects in the labour market related to Covid-19


Keynote Speaker: Seppo Honkapohja (Bank of Finland, Aalto University)
