On Friday 21 October 2022 the book ‘Liability of Financial Supervisors and Resolution Authorities’, published by Oxford University Press, will be launched.

This is an in-person event organised by the Commercial Law Centre at Harris Manchester College and The Radboud Business Law Institute at Radboud University, Nijmegen. 

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, there has been an increase in claims by clients, shareholders, depositors, and bondholders of financial firms against financial supervisors and resolution authorities for inadequate supervision or resolution action. Liability of Financial Supervisors and Resolution Authorities is the first book to offer a thorough and systematic analysis of the liability regimes that apply to financial supervisors and resolution authorities at the EU level (particularly relevant since the European Banking Union came into operation in 2014), at the level of individual EU Member States, as well as in other major jurisdictions worldwide, including the UK.
