Fixing our banks: What to fix and by whom?

Monday 4 March 2013
Keyworth Centre, Southwark campus - View map

Banks are crucial for the economy to recover. However, it is clear that there are many issues that need to be addressed in order to guarantee the safety of these financial institutions and to restore trust in them.

To that end, regulators, governments and bankers themselves have engaged in much discussion and put forward several proposals. Are the point of views of varying stakeholders represented in these discussions? Is the current debate missing critical issues with regards to what has gone wrong? Have any fundamental problems been disregarded by current proposals in terms of regulation and codes of practice?

This free conference intends to take regard for questions such as these and enable presentation of a more dynamic view of the banks' difficulties by asking representatives of autonomous stakeholder organisations to provide their views.
