Post- Crisis International Financial Regulation: Fragmentation, Harmonization and Coordination

The challenges of the 2008 financial crisis were severe and prolonged. The international regulatory community struggled to contain, manage and respond to the crisis despite a fragmented and complex set of regulatory sources and an unclear path to coordination let alone harmonization.  Still, the urgency brought on by the crisis forced a degree of cooperation and sparked a hope that greater cooperation could emerge amongst the world regulators going forward.  As the world emerges from this crisis, whether the ability or desire to forge greater cooperation exists is less than clear.

The International Economic Law Interest Group (IEcLIG) of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) will host a special Research Forum in early December 2011 to discuss the complexities international financial regulation post crisis. The conference will take place at Suffolk Law School on December 2, 2011. We invite the submission of proposals in the form of abstracts of no more than 300 words which will address this topic. Here is an illustrative list of potential topics, although you should feel free to submit any paper topic relevant to this field of study.
