Biography

Catherine Schenk FRHS, AcSS is Professor of International Economic History at the University of Glasgow.  She gained her PhD at the London School of Economics and has held academic posts at Royal Holloway, University of London, Victoria University of Wellington and visiting positions at the International Monetary Fund and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority as well as the University of Hong Kong and Nottingham Business School campus in Seminyeh Malaysia.  She is Associate Fellow in the international economics department at Chatham House in London.

Research interests

Research Interests

My research ranges across a variety of topics in international economic relations.  I am particularly interested in the current policy implications of the history of the development of international financial regulation and the organisation of the international monetary system since 1945.  Additionally, I undertake research on the development of Hong Kong's international financial centre and relations between Hong Kong and Mainland China since 1945.

My major research interest is understanding the relations between banks and regulators, the constraints on effective banking supervision, the impact of financial regulation and how multilateral institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and the Bank for International Settlements interacted with national regulators. I am particularly interested in how bankers, governments and other policy-makers developed and used interpretations of the past when reacting to crises.

Additionally, I am exploring why proposals to reform the international monetary system in the 1970s and 1980s, such as the Substitution Account and a rules based system for balance of payments adjustment, were not effective and what this might suggest about the prospects for similar proposals today.

A third set of research questions address the determinants of international currency status and how this changes over time, by examining how the role of sterling in the international monetary system evolved since 1945.  This has implications for current international monetary reform and the future role of the US dollar and the SDR.
