Call for Papers–Wharton conference on financial regulation and the rule of law

by Peter Conti-Brown — Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2016

My colleague David Zaring and I are hosting a conference in April 2017 entitled, simply enough, Financial Regulation and the Rule of Law. The papers presented are a mix of invited papers and an open call, which I am pasting below. If this topic interests you, we hope you’ll submit.

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania will host an international conference, “Financial Regulation and the Rule of Law,” on April 7-8, 2017, and issues a call for papers to any scholars from any discipline—law, economics, political science, history, business, and beyond. The paper presenters—will include invited and competitive submissions—should be on any related topic. The conference will include a keynote address from Donald Kohn, former Vice Chair of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve System and current member of the Financial Policy Committee at the Bank of England. Reasonable travel expenses for selected presentations will be covered.

To submit a paper, please include an unpublished manuscript not exceeding 20,000 words and a CV to conference organizers Peter Conti-Brown ( and David Zaring (, by October 1, 2016. Selected presenters will be notified by email by October 31, 2016.
