International Finance Review (IFR), a peer-reviewed and established annual that publishes theme-oriented special issues on various aspects of international finance, is pleased to introduce a new special issue on “Economic Imbalances and Institutional Changes to the Euro and the European Union”

The economic crisis revealed the existence of different forms of imbalances inside the Eurozone and highlighted the flaws of the institutional architecture of economic policy in Europe. The greater fragility of some countries in respect to others has triggered a backward process in which national interests have started to prevail over those of both the currency area and the entire European Union.  In turn, this has fuelled a progressive decline in confidence in the European institutions and is creating growing questions of interpretation both in terms of economic theory and institutional asset.

The special issue focuses on these issues and on the degree of legitimacy of the European institutions resulting therefrom. It aims to investigate the nature and validity of the European integration process emphasizing limits and challenges arising from it.

This special issue covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Macroeconomic imbalances in Eurozone countries
  • Regulatory and political issues in the economic policy framework in   the Eurozone
  • Single monetary policy failures
  • Confidence and Trust in European institutions
  • Capital flows and fiscal imbalances
  • Design patterns of fiscal policy coordination, competition and   harmonization of tax systems
  • Optimal responses to economic imbalances, fiscal and monetary policy   mix and business cycles synchronization in the Eurozone
  • External competitiveness, internal devaluation and the risk of   deflationary spiral

We invite you to submit your original research papers on these topics using theoretical, empirical, institutional, or policy-oriented approaches.

International Finance Review is listed in Cabell's, EconLit, Scopus, Summon (ProQuest), and Thomson Reuters' Book Citation Index ensuring great visibility to authors.
