Elgar Financial Law series
Edited by Gianni Lo Schiavo, Lawyer, European Central Bank, Frankfurt, Germany
The European Banking Union and the Role of Law offers a comprehensive and unique examination of the European Banking Union’s (EBU) impact on existing legal disciplines and assesses the role of law in shaping the EBU framework.
With expert contributions from academics, practitioners and EU officials, this thought-provoking book provides different perspectives on the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) and the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM). Evaluating and proposing original interpretations on the EBU at a key stage of its development in the European Union, this book assesses topical issues relating to the institutional and administrative rules of the EBU, the interpretation and application of banking law, supervision and resolution frameworks, judicial rules and protection in the EBU. The book is structured into three parts: a general overview of the EBU framework and specific reflections on both the SSM and the SRM. The contributions show that the EBU is a successful European integration project, yet challenges still lie ahead.
This topical and engaging book will be an important resource for practitioners, and public servants in the financial sector. Academics and students of financial law and European law will also find this book a valuable read.
