The area of household finance has received an increased amount of attention over the past two decades and has been high on both policy and research agendas since the financial crisis, where the financial vulnerability of many households was exposed.  The workshop will aim to foster debate relating to a range of topics relating to household finance, including, for example, household portfolio allocation, debt accumulation and financial literacy.
