Global financial governance is a growing area that has seen unprecedented interest since the global financial crises that began in 2008 and somewhat abated by 2015. Moreover, the increase in the number of informal and formal regulatory institutions in global finance along with various heads of states meetings suggest that global financial governance is one of the most delicate area that requires knowledge of law, governance theory, and how financial markets and supervision operates. This course introduces students to the regulatory and governance structure of global finance and the role of financial institutions, informal actors and states in understanding how global financial governance works. To this end, the course covers a variety of areas and or emerging critiques on global financial governance.
