EVENT: 2014 Symposium - International Financial Regulation in the Post-Crisis Era

Mark your calendars for this year's Georgetown Journal of International Law symposium. The topic for 2014 is financial regulation.

Georgetown University Law Center, 
Gewirz Student Center,
Tuesday, April 8, 2014,
8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

International Financial Regulation (IFR) is concerned with the oversight and supervision of participants in financial markets around the world. To date, IFR has been primarily governed by informal, non-binding agreements, or “soft law,” implemented voluntarily by States at the domestic level. However, in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the increasingly interconnected nature of financial markets has become a paramount concern for the international community, raising questions of whether and what reforms are needed to prevent future crises.  

To explore these issues, the Georgetown Journal of International Law (GJIL) and the Atlantic Council will present the 2014 GJIL Symposium, entitled “International Financial Regulation in the Post-Crisis Era.”  This day-long event will take place on April 8, 2014, at the Georgetown University Law Center. The Symposium will feature panels on the prospects for regional and international financial regulation; international financial regulation and the global economy; the intersections of trade and finance; and the topic of economic diplomacy as discussed in the newly released book Minilateralism, by Georgetown Law Professor and Atlantic Council Fellow, Chris Brummer.
