Autumn School on Banking Resolution Fully Booked

Registrations for the first Autumn School of the Florence School of Banking and Finance on 22-25 November 2017 are now closed, as all available seats have been allocated.

The training course, entitled ‘The Law, Economics and Practice of EU Banking Resolution‘, is organised jointly with the School of Transnational Governance, recently established at the European University Institute with the aim to deliver teaching and high-level training in the methods, knowledge, skills and practice of governance beyond the State.

The Autumn School aims to provide participants with the necessary theoretical background and practical expertise on the implementation of the new EU framework on the resolution of financial institutions, born from the 2007-2008 economic crisis with the goals to minimise spill-over effects on the real economy and the burden on the taxpayer when banks fail or in systemic crisis. The course will start from the European Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD) and its institutional counterpart for the Banking Union, the Single Resolution Mechanism and will cover all its relevant underlining aspects.
