Among the sessions of the XIX World Economic History Congress 2022, running in Paris these days until 30 July 2022, a panel will be focused on the historical analysis and comparison of microcredit models from a transepocal and global perspective.
The panel, entitled Microcredit as a Resource for the Less Poor? Comparing Models in the Historical Perspective from the Middle Ages to the Present, was organised by Paola Avallone (CNR - ISMed) and Donatella Strangio (Università di Roma La Sapienza), with Maria Carmela Schisani (Università di Napoli Federico II) and Antoni Furió (Universitad de València) participating as discussants.
A large international group of scholars will present their research and historical analysis on different forms of microcredit, developed and implemented in a period from the late Middle Ages to the contemporary age, in a geographical sphere spanning Western and Eastern Europe, the Ottoman world, Latin America and Japan.
Abstracts of the papers are published at this link.
