The second two-day Conference was organised by the TransMonEA project, on the 1st-2nd November 2021, by the  Academy of Athens. Subject : "Monetary Integration and Disintegration in the Interwar Europe: Τhe Impact of the Great Depression, from Institutional Agency to Local Conditions". 

The subject matter of the two-day conference was the investigation of monetary policies and the international monetary order, established  during the interwar period: monetary phenomena also reflect on geographical differentiations in the evolution of the market mechanisms. The Conference explored whether the monetary imbalance of the interwar period was responsible for and resulted in the Great Depression. This question requires an analysis of the conditions of international monetary cooperation created in the 1920s in order to address the inflationary phenomena caused by the Great War. Therefore, the main research topic of the Conference was the discontinuity observed during the interwar period, i.e., the transition from the ‘20s economic liberalism to the economic protectionism of the 1930s. An important research parameter of the Conference was the comparative perspective: in relation to economic asymmetry, the economic crisis of 2008-2009 had similar characteristics as Southern Europe, but also as the multipolar modern world. The homogeneous attempts for financial stability through the globalised market not only had many similarities, but also significant differences compared to the economic policies that took place during the Great Depression. The Conference examined the long-run effects of the public debt, in relation to the monetary circuits, thus connecting - at the level of research hypotheses- the Early Modern Europe with our era.
