Marina Hübner is interested in the growth of shadow bank-based finance during the Great Moderation and its surprising resilience post-2008. In her current research, she is studying the strategic use of financial instruments, in particular securitization, as macroeconomic governing tools in the context of the European Monetary Union governance reform. Marina has recently published a paper on the role of the ECB in European securitization markets (2016) and is co-editing a special issue on the political economy of European Capital Markets Union, to be published in Competition & Change (together with Benjamin Braun and Daniela Gabor).
