What is this event about?
One consequence of the global financial crisis has been consideration of the need to review the current financial regulation within States. However, it is clear that the nature of financial markets, corporate activity and inter-State connections, mean that any regulation requires some international element. This conference will consider how external pressures limit or influence the discretion of each State to regulate its own markets. In particular, it will show how treaty obligations, European Union requirements, competition law, Islamic law, other State's laws, international investment practices, the rule of law and other matters are all relevant for any future effective financial regulation.
