The growing role of financial markets and institutions in the economy is sometimes referred to as financialization. It denotes the process by which financial markets determine the behavior of all actors, including financial institutions, enterprises, individual investors and households. Financial markets act on a number of socio-economic categories and shape many areas of life, at the same time increasing awareness about corporate social responsibility. Bearing in mind the importance of financialization, the Department of Finance at the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszów, together with the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Warsaw, made a joint decision to hold an International Scientific Conference "Financialization and society", which will be held on 6 - 7 December 2019 in Rzeszów. It is one of the first conferences on the subject in Poland.
Our intention is to integrate the various points of view of academia on the issue. We would like to create a field for interdisciplinary discussion, which is why the conference is addressed to representatives of both socio-economic sciences and the humanities.
