Latest eBook: ‘The Changing Geography of Finance and Regulation in Europe’

The Florence School of Banking and Finance has just published its latest book, which is available for download for free from Cadmus, the EUI research repository.

This book contains the proceedings of the conference ‘The Changing Geography of Finance and Regulation in Europe‘, organised by the Florence School of Banking and Finance at the European University Institute’s Robert Schuman Centre of Advanced Studies and the Brevan Howard Centre at Imperial College London, in cooperation with BAFFI CAREFIN at Bocconi University, which was held at in Florence on 27 April 2017.

The publication of this book reinforces the tradition established in 2011 at the FBF of gathering in Florence every summer leading economists, lawyers, political scientists and policy makers to discuss the economic situation in Europe in the light of the most pressing policy priorities, challenges and future prospects. After the event, the contributions by the speakers are collected in an edited ebook, free to download in electronic format and available also in print at selected FBF events.
