The global financial crisis showed that financial policies are not equal to the challenges presented by globalisation. But how could financial systems be made both more resilient and equitable? This is the focus of the research project Distributed Global Financial Systems for Society (DOLFINS), which aims to develop evidence-based models and scenarios in support of sustainable financial policy-making at the European level. Researchers will examine the prospects for engaging citizens in policymaking processes at an early stage to ensure that policies are better aligned with the public interest. The project will also explore opportunities to employ modern communication technologies and art as outreach tools for education and entry points for citizens’ engagement.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 640772, and the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation under contract number 15.0012.
