Professor Catherine Schenk
Associate Fellow, Global Economy and Finance Programme
Catherine Schenk is professor of economic and social history at Oxford University and a fellow of St. Hilda’s College. Her research ranges across a variety of topics in international economic relations.
She is particularly interested in the current policy implications of the history of the development of international financial regulation, international payments, and the organization of the international monetary system since 1945.
Additionally, she undertakes research on the development of Hong Kong’s international financial centre and relations between Hong Kong and Mainland China since 1945 and the evolution of sovereign debt markets particularly after 1970.
Her current major research project is funded by the European Research Council that explores the development of the global payments system since 1870 with a focus on how the network of cross-border correspondent banking relationships evolved over the long term.
She has been visiting research fellow at the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements, and the Hong Kong Institute for Monetary Research at the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.
