Financial Law and Economics: Financial Crisis and Europe

when 14 July 2014 - 18 July 2014
duration 1 week
credits 1.5 EC
fee EUR 750

This course deals with the effects of Financial and Securities Law on the global and European Economy, and vice versa. The Credit Crunch was caused by, amongst others, an inefficient regulation of securitization (of mortgage products) and poor governance of banks. The Eurocrisis showed the effects of the lack of rules and tools on the European economy. By way of lectures, participation in workshops and writing a paper, participants get insights in these issues while formulating solutions for a more sustainable financial system.
