Inhoud vak

This course in the Master Programme Law, Markets & Behavior focuses on
the international financial markets,
the actors in such markets (with a focus on banks) and the regulation of
markets and businesses that fulfil
roles on such markets. The course will focus on the European financial
markets and the developments since
the first financial crisis of 2007/2008 and the sovereign-crisis of
2011. Particular attention will first be paid to
the causes and origins of the financial crisis. Secondly, the political
and regulatory responses to such crisis will
be discussed in various parts of the programme. The changes to the
institutional models for the supervision
of the financial sector in Europe will be discussed. Particularly, this
part provides in-depth discussion as to the
European System of Financial Supervision that started in 2011 and the
Single Supervisory Mechanism that
commenced on 4 November 2014. Apart from new institutional arrangements,
the revised approaches for
supervision of banks, insurance companies and other financial markets
participants will be highlighted,
including the new approaches in respect of supervision of culture,
governance and behaviour.
