Professor Bismuth Presents His Latest Book at the European University Institute
|Thursday, 03 January 2013|
On December 11, Professor Régis Bismuth was invited by the European University Institute in Florence (Italy) to give a presentation of his latest book: La Cooperation Internationale des autorités de régulation du secteur financier et le droit international public (A Public International Law Perspective on the International Cooperation of Financial Regulatory Authorities), Brussels: Bruylant, 2011.
Professor Bismuth discussed the forms of cooperation between financial regulators which have developed in response to the increasing globalization of financial activities. This type of cooperation has largely taken place outside of the traditional diplomatic channels and had caught little attention from International Law experts and professionals until the publication of Professor Bismuth's book.
"These cooperation mechanisms, that appear at first sight as a soft governance phenomenon, constitute, in fact, a genuine and effective financial diplomacy,"says Professor Bismuth.
The European University Institute is an academic institution established as an intergovernmental organization by EU member-states to conduct teaching and research in social sciences with a European perspective.
