The Systemic Risk Centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the Business School (formerly Cass) at the City, University of London are jointly organising a workshop on the theme of political finance. Papers from last year’s inaugural workshop have ended up being published in top journals such as Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis.

There will be a dedicated discussant for each paper, as well as open floor discussion.
