Abstract

First embodied by the European Supervisory Authorities in 2010, agency governance in the financial sector has gained momentum with the creation of the Single Resolution Board (SRB) – an EU agency with considerable competencies in banking prudential policy. Within a short period, backed by the ‘ESMA-Short Selling case’ judgment, agencies have progressed from supporting the European Commission with their quasi-rule making, to a more prominent role in decision-making process, potentially influencing policymakers’ agenda.

Marta Božina Beroš looks into the formal framework and practical aspects of SRB’s governance, highlighting problematic issues in respect of SRB's sizeable powers, arising because of limitations set by constitutional and legal limitations. She also reflects upon the first measures adopted by SRB within the European banking market.
