2022 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar

Call for Papers


The German Ministry of Finance is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 2022 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar (FPS), which will take place in Berlin on 14-15 November 2022. 

The annual FPS aims to bridge the gap between academic research and policy-making. This year’s topic is:

“Macroeconomic policy in times of overlapping crises”

European economies are facing overlapping crises: The Russian war against Ukraine and the associated surge in energy prices have joined the effects of the still ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic-related disruption of global supply chains amplified by the consequences of the war weigh heavily on global trade and growth prospects. As a result, inflation has reached levels not seen in decades, uncertainty has increased substantially, and growth forecasts have been revised downwards. We face substantial stagflation risks.

The aim of the 2022 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar is to present cutting-edge academic work that can contribute to a better understanding of this challenging macroeconomic environment and to inform policymakers about appropriate responses in favor of more resilient economies. Featuring a policy panel and a keynote address, the FPS further aims to facilitate discussion and the exchange of knowledge and ideas.

We are especially interested in submissions covering topics that include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following issues:

Adequate national fiscal and economic policies in containing stagflation risks in the euro area
Consequences and possibilities to address supply chain disruptions globally and nationally
Geoeconomic risks, resilience, and recalibration of global value chains
Demographic and climate change, productivity trends, and the strategic rebalancing of world trade – impacts on trend inflation and implications for the euro-area policy mix
Fiscal and monetary policy interaction in view of rising interest rates and inflation
Challenges for fiscal sustainability in the EMU

Both theoretical and empirical submissions are welcome. We invite papers in English to be submitted by 15 August 2022 to: IA1@bmf.bund.de (please use the subject line: “Submission for 2022 Franco-German Fiscal Policy Seminar”). Authors of papers selected by the Scientific Committee, chaired by Andreas Peichl (ifo Institute and University of Munich), will be notified in September. 

Travel and hotel expenses of the invited speakers (one per select paper) will be covered by the German Ministry of Finance.
