Over the last decade, research programs about the economic achievements of emerging countries have highlighted the growing impact of these countries in global exchanges, in particular those belonging to the BRICS. Indeed, the latter are not only industrial and commercial giants but also major actors in the energy sector in such a way that the world balances are disturbed. Yet, further to the Subprime crisis and the world demand decline, the vulnerabilities of emerging countries to external shocks have increased, notably to the US monetary policy. These long term vulnerabilities emphasize the limits of the outward-oriented development strategies and, due to economic and financial interdependences, leading to fears of a global crisis.Thus, emerging countries are standing at a crossroads : their problems of growth (China), of inflation (Brazil, India), their financial (China), demographic (China) and social concerns (China, Brazil), and also the political instability of some of them (Brazil, Egypt, Tunisia)... are challenges they have to overcome to transform their economy. This workshop has the ambition to question the vulnerabilities of these countries under their commercial, monetary and financial aspects. Finally, the range of the issues covered by this workshop can conduct to a vast research program.
Papers can in particular address the following issues :
a. How do these countries, which are developing ones, fit in these lower growth periods ?
b. How do they modify their growth model ? How do they deepen their structural change ?
c. How do they manage financial instability ?
d. Is there a global financial cycle that may have pro-cyclical effects on emerging countries ?
e. Are emerging markets’ difficulties, in particular in China, a potential source of global/regional financial crisis ?
f. How do the financial problems in China disrupt the internationalization of its currency and its recent inclusion into the SRD composition ?
g. Is the regular reduction of some emerging countries’ international reserves a case of concern ? ...
