The Capital Markets Union
An “Ever Closer Union” for the EU Financial System?
While a period of stability might have been expected following the epochal crisis-era reforms, the European Union is preoccupied with a new financial governance reform agenda – the Capital Markets Union. In her presentation, Niamh Moloney (LSE) exposes how periodic shifts in the prevailing political, institutional, and market climate can signal significant change. Attendance is free, registration is requested.
This event is organized in cooperation with ACCESS EUROPE.
Moloney's analysis of CMU underlines the extent to which incrementalism and dynamism characterize the evolution of EU financial system governance. The presentation exposes how periodic shifts in the prevailing political, institutional, and market climate can signal significant change. In particular, CMU has been designed as a single market project in order to strengthen funding sources for the EU financial system by means of a supportive regulatory system. It is, however, becoming associated with a nascent euro-area Financial Union agenda which has different drivers, being tied to the completion of the European Monetary Union. The extent to which CMU remains a single market project or becomes characterized as a means for completing the EMU will determine both the type of regulatory governance it will deliver and how it will shape supervisory governance for the EU capital market.
Niamh Moloney is Professor of Financial Markets Law in the London School of Economics and Political Science. She specializes in EU financial market regulation and wrote the first book on this topic, now in its third edition (EU Securities and Financial Markets Regulation, OUP, 2014).
Attendance is free of charge. For organizational reasons, please sign up for the meeting on the website of ACCESS EUROPE.
