Call for Papers: European Central Bank Legal Research Programme 2017

enero 27, 2017

The European Central Bank (ECB) is seeking applications from established or promising younger researchers for up to four legal research scholarships to be awarded in 2017. The Legal Research Programme was launched in 2008 to foster analysis of areas of law relevant to the ECB’s statutory tasks, and to establish closer contacts with scholars. Each scholarship is endowed with a grant of EUR 10 000, which is not compatible with any other fellowships or grants received from third parties in relation to the research project for which it is awarded, unless the ECB has expressly provided its consent.

The research topics are: (1) Dealing with set-off risk in financial collateral arrangements and securities; (2) Liability and accountability for policies announced to the public and for press releases; (3) Relationship between supervision / resolution and monetary policy / supervision (issues of separation, overlapping, conflict of competence and complementarity); (4) The mandate of national state auditors vis-à-vis national supervisory authorities (evaluation of the relevance of the so-called audit gap; (5) Securities ownership rules in the EU: national regimes, transnational investments? (6) Inviolability of the ECB’s archives under the Protocol of the Privileges and Immunities of the European Union; (7) Judicial review of central bank policies and decisions, including in the area of monetary policy, payment systems, financial stability, resolution and supervision, in a comparative perspective; and (8) Scope for financial stability considerations in the fulfilment of the mandate of the ECB/ Eurosystem.

Application deadline: 15 February 2017.
