Legal Challenges in the Global Financial Crisis

Bail-outs, the Euro and Regulation

Edited by: Wolf-Georg Ringe, Peter M Huber

The global financial and economic crisis which started in 2008 has had devastating effects around the globe. It has caused a rethinking in different areas of law, and has posed new challenges to regulators and private actors alike. One of the emerging issues is the apparent eclipse of boundaries between different legal disciplines: financial and corporate lawyers have to learn how public law instruments can complement their traditional governance tools; conversely, public lawyers have had to come to understand the specificities of the financial markets they intend to regulate. While commentary on financial regulation and the global financial crisis abounds, it tends to remain within disciplinary boundaries. This volume illustrates how interdisciplinary scholarship belongs at the center of any discussion of the economic crisis, and indeed regulation theory more generally. As a timely exploration of cutting-edge issues of financial regulation, the book brings together scholarship from different areas of law (constitutional and administrative law, EU law, financial law, and regulation), from a variety of backgrounds (academic, practitioner, and policy making), and from a number of different jurisdictions. It is a fascinating and thought-provoking study for anyone interested in how the global financial crisis has affected the law.
