The workshop will discuss central banks’ expanding roles, independence and control mechanisms. Amongst other issues, it will examine the historical origin of central bank independence, to what extent are courts and tribunals willing to review the legality of central banks’ decision making, and how is this influencing central banks policies, as well as what alternative mechanisms for checks and balances of central bank policies exist.
Welcome to our afternoon seminar with presentation by Astrid Iversen, associate professor at Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences and guest researcher at University of Oslo.
Open for all interested. Please register your participation.
How should central banks deal with the current climate crisis? Does a broader role for central banks in questions related to the climate crisis require rethinking their independence from democratic politics or does it fit within their current mandate? And if central banks have a role to play with regards to the climate crisis, are the tools available good enough?
