Anlässlich des 7. Deutschen Diversitäts-Tages stellt Professor Guido Friebel von der Goethe Universität in Frankfurt die Resultate der ersten Vollerhebung aller europäischen Universitäten, Business-Schools und Forschungsinstitutionen vor.

The Political Economy of Bilateral Bailouts: IMF loans during times of financial crisis often occur in conjunction with bilateral financial rescues. These bilateral bailouts are substantial in size and a central component of international cooperation during financial crises.
