Moreover, all contributors will be mentioned amongst the journal’s contributors.

During the month of January, we ask copy editors to review two separate articles, each of around 6000 words. You should also be available for at least two hours on Thursday 30 and/or Friday 31 January 2014 for the copy-editing "weekend", during which we will go over each article twice more.

Launch of Responding to Crises: The Past, Present, and Future of International Financial Institutions, May 2011

STAIR launched last May its latest issue featuring a section on “Responding to Crises: The Past, Present, and Future of International Financial Institutions” (Volume 7, Number 1). Following the financial crisis of 2008-09, policymakers and scholars have been forced to recognize that the model of finance-led growth that came to dominate Western societies, which was increasingly exported across the globe during the 1980s and 1990s, and which came to shape the basic international financial architecture, has very real limits. Pulling together a series of articles from eminent senior scholars, as well as emerging academics, plus interviews with a leading analyst in Harold James, and an experienced public figure in the Right Honourable Paul Martin, the issue aims to shed light on both the continuity and change emerging from this recognition.

The issue is available on IngentaConnect.

 

Launch events

Issue launch events are held for the publication of each issue. They are normally held in Blackwell's and feature a panel debate between academics and policy-makers on the theme of the issue. Here are some images from our previous launch events, including 'Responding to Crises: The Past, Present, and Future of International Financial Institutions' and 'China's Rise and Adapting Global Structures.’
