The Institute for Global Law Economics and Finance (IGLEF) aims through external events, research projects and publications to stimulate research in various areas of law, economics and finance with a focus on their interaction on those areas where law and finance or economics operate very closely, inter alia: corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, banking law, insolvency law, competition law, financial regulation, law and economics, project finance, capital markets, derivatives, sovereign finance and others.
The aim of the research conducted at IGLEF is to look at these disciplines from a dynamic rather than static perspective, understand their evolution and assess their intertwined application in various areas of today’s legal systems, economies and financial markets. IGLEF invites ideas that can constitute the basis of innovative and ground breaking research. We also consider funded research projects tailored to the funder's needs.
IGLEF purports to constitute a natural 'meeting' point of the three disciplines by encouraging practitioners and academics to work in an interdisciplinary manner by focusing on the intersection of law, economics and finance, and providing a theoretical and empirical coverage and a thought-provoking analysis of the topics in the field from both, a policy and a market oriented approach.
IGLEF has introduced an interdisciplinary working paper series and invites papers from practitioners and academics around the world.
