Last July the Centre for International Banking, Insurance and Finance (CIBIF) organized a successful Summer School for nearly forty researchers, practitioners and MPhil and PhD students. The participants, originating from 17 countries, exchanged knowledge and experiences about financial inclusion and engaged in deep and intriguing discussions.
