With contributions from some of the world’s leading authorities on monetary policy and more broadly, macroeconomic policy, this conference will provide a critical overview of the use of unconventional monetary policy.

The workshop will take place on Friday 30 September, at the NIESR Offices, 2 Dean Trench Street, SW1P 3HE. The event will be in-person only, however transcriptions of the event will be made available online afterwards.
