The Financial Economics MeetingPost-Crisis Challenges (FEM-2019), jointly organized by the EDC Paris Business School, University of Carthage (IHEC Carthage),  University of Tunis (ISG de Tunis), the University of Montpellier, and EAE Business School (Spain)under the patronage of the Mediterranean Association of Economics and Finance (AMEF) will take place on 21-22 December 2019 at the Hotel MAGIC Hotel AFRICANA (5 Stars) in South Hammamet, (Tunisia). 

In the last twenty years, several periods of turmoil (the internet bubble, the subprime crisis, sovereign debt, etc.) have shaped the financial and economic system. Many regulatory policies, such as Basle 3, have been introduced to overcome further crises and scandals. In addition, monetary policy has experienced a transition from conventional to unconventional frameworks in both industrialized and emerging economies. For instance, turning to hedge and diversification of portfolios, commodities markets have attracted increasing interest. More recently, new forms of money have been introduced, such as virtual money (Bitcoin, among others), leading to a new bubble that might affect financial markets. These changes have influenced governance features at both macro and micro levels. Therefore, calls for more ethical and sustainable standards in finance and economic spheres have been growing since 2007. 

The current call for papers invites authors to submit proposals mobilizing different approaches to analyze the macro and micro effects of these changes on the financial and economic system. We cordially invite academics, practitioners, and policymakers no later than September 15, 2019
