Eleventh International Conference on

Women in Macroeconomics and Finance

November 27 - 28, 2017

Fritz-Thyssen Foundation Cologne, Germany


The global financial crisis has highlighted the close link between the financial sector and the macroeconomy. The Special Priority Program (SPP 1578) “Financial Market Imperfections and Macroeconomic Performance” of the German Science Foundation (DFG) is organizing a workshop to discuss the impact of financial market imperfections on macroeconomic outcomes and policy implications.

The workshop brings together outstanding researchers in macroeconomics and finance and aims at improving the interaction of women in the field. Keynote speeches will be given by Stefania Albanesi (University of Pittsburgh), Sebnem Kalemli-Özcan (University of Maryland) and Manju Puri (Duke University). The event does not target females exclusively, but achieves a much higher than normal participation of females.
