The financial crisis has caused an economic crisis around the world. Drastic state measures have prevented the collapse of the economic system: governments have established rescue funds for failing banks or nationalized banks for relaunching economic growth. At the same time, central banks have intervened with important injections of liquidity and have lowered interest rates.

What were the causes of the financial crisis?

In the future, how can such crises be prevented?

What effect will state measures have in the long term?

What will a global adjustment of the financial system look like? Who should develop and apply the rules?

This session is co-organized with the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches (SEK-FEPS).
