As in Madrid (2009), Cambridge (2010), Paris (2011), Bonn (2012), Antwerp (2013), Cambridge (2015), Belfast (2016), the 8th edition of the EURHISTOCK workshop aims at providing a meeting point for financial and economic historians as well as financial economists interested in the long-term changes of European financial markets.
Papers for presentation investigate the development of business, banking and finance over the past centuries, how this development interacted with legal and political institutions, and the impact on economic performance. Contributions on accounting, corporate governance and corporate finance from a historical perspective are welcomed.
This workshop provides a unique opportunity to discuss ongoing research and to revive or start up joint research initiatives. The new H2020 project “EURHISFIRM – Long Term Company-level Data for Europe” has its roots in the EURHISTOCK workshops and is the ideal framework for these research initiatives. We particularly invite both junior researchers and PhD students to submit. Thanks to sponsorship by the Equipment of Excellence Data for Financial History, we are able to provide some financial support to cover travel and accommodation expenses for a few paper
presenters (priority will be given to junior researchers and PhD students).
Applicants are asked to indicate the demand for financial support and a preliminary budget at the submission. On the afternoon of December 13th, an event is organized to present the achievements of the Equipment of Excellence Data for Financial History. Participants at the workshop are cordially invited to this event (see program below). The workshop is jointly organized by the Paris School of Economics and the European Business School-Paris.
