GEG postdoc Peter Knaack recently presented the interim results of the GEG flagship research project on Banking Standards in Low and Lower Middle Income Countries (LMIC) at a conference in Nairobi, Kenya. Hosted by the ESRC, DFID, ODI and the African Economic Research Council, the conference brought together scholars working on agriculture, innovation and financial inclusion on the African continent.

Conference attendees were interested to hear about the results of quantitative study conducted by Professor Emily Jones and DPhil student Alexandra Zeitz on the drivers of Basel II adoption around the world. The conference provided a great opportunity for engagement with policymakers and fellow scholars seeking to understand how LMIC can best navigate the world of global financial regulatory standards.
