This seminar examines financial regulation with a global outlook, both geographically and conceptually. Its main aim is for the participants to understand what bank regulation is, what it seeks to achieve and why bank regulation needs to differ from the regulation of other types of businesses.
Participants will look in detail at the nature of bank regulation and its objectives as well as the implications of decisions around regulatory systems. The underlying question is to what extent financial regulation is supporting financial stability and enabling growth. Current topics in finance and banking will be analysed with a legal-conceptual perspective, allowing the participants to consider the political, policy and economic fundamentals of financial regulation.
The seminar will focus on a global perspective with relevant developments in Europe (dealing mainly with Cyprus, Greece, UK, and Switzerland) and the US, as well as with other regions dependent upon the participants’ interest and actual developments.
By the end of the programme the participants will be able to:
- Examine the characteristics of International Banking Regulation
