In terms of monetary policy stance, central bank officials can be divided into two categories: doves and hawks, which mainly depend on their judgment of the current economic situation.

When central bank officials support rate hikes to fight inflation, we call them hawk officials, although doing so will adversely affect economic growth and employment.

For example, the Bank of England hinted that inflation is threatening the economy. If the Bank of England expresses its tendency to curb inflation by raising interest rates through an official statement, then the Bank of England’s stance will be hawkish.

On the other hand, dovish officials tend to tighten interest rates to promote economic growth and increase employment. For a certain event or action, they will also show a non-radical position.
You will also find that some central bank officials will maintain a wait-and-see attitude. They will show both the hawkish stance and the doveish tendency, but when extreme market conditions appear, they will show obvious hawkish or Dove school stand.
