Presentation of a book by Panicos Demetriades (University of Leicester) 'A Diary of the Euro Crisis in Cyprus Lessons for Bank Recovery and Resolution'

Event ended

Panicos Demetriades is a Professor of Financial Economics at the University of Leicester. In past he served as Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus (Euro system) and member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank.

The book Professor Demetriades is presenting at HSE — 'Diary of the Euro crisis in Cyprus: Lessons for Bank Recovery and Resolution' — tells the story of the euro crisis in Cyprus from the inside.
Written in chronological order, and broadly based on the author’s personal diary, starting from his first day in office as Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus, this volume brings together economics, banking, regulation, governance, history, politics and international relations.
Presenting personal witness statements, including records of noteworthy telephone conversations, informal meetings and other milestones, it examines crucial questions like: How did Cyprus become so systemically important to the rest of the euro area? Why was Cyprus treated so differently in comparison to other peripheral countries in Europe? Why were bank depositors targeted? What role did Cyprus’ links with Russia play in the design of the programme? What has been the toxic fallout from the bail-in? Are there any longer-term implications for the euro? What are the lessons for regulators around the world.
As Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus, Professor Demetriades oversaw a major restructuring and recapitalization of the Cypriot banking system using modern bank recovery and resolution tools. He also participated in the discussions that led to the establishment of the Single Supervisory Mechanism in the euro area.
