Finance and financial regulation
Coordinator: Nicolas Veron
Contributors: Jörg Rocholl, Garry Schinasi
The proposals made under this section are broadly in the continuity of Bruegel’s research in this area in 2011. The main research investment will be on the regulation of global financial intermediaries with an emphasis on supervision, resolution, and related issues of “structural” regulation. Started in 2011, this research will be continued in 2012, with the aim of a book publication towards late 2012 or early 2013. In parallel, the successful Finance Focus Breakfast series of about-monthly events at Bruegel will be continued and help shed light on specific challenges for EU financial policy.
