Session 2 – Finance
The financial system has periodically undergone crises and the current 'credit crunch' has reopened the debate on the link between financial stability and the governance of financial institutions. This session will review our knowledge of the role of corporate governance in financial systems and re-examine it in the light of current developments. What are the governance elements that make financial institutions inherently unstable? Have corporate governance failures been a contributory cause of the current difficulties?

Session 3 – Law
The Financial Services sector is one of the most regulated industries in the world. This session will give an overview of the rules governing institutions and their gatekeepers.  It will also review the policy responses to the current crisis. Why has regulation been insufficient to prevent the current crisis? Is new regulation required or do the current rules need better application?

Session 5 – Policy Forum
Responses to previous financial crises have often been unilateral and have led to regulatory inconsistencies and tensions between Europe and the United States.  Is a common approach now desirable or achievable? This session will examine the regulatory responses that are, or should be, on the table.
