The European Union and Global Financial Regulation

Lucia Quaglia

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews several bodies of scholarly work, namely the international political economy literature on cooperation and standard-setting; the literature on the external economic relations of the EU; and that on financial services regulation in the EU. It then outlines the research design and the analytical framework, whereby the key explanatory variable is ‘regulatory capacity’. A two by two explanatory matrix can be created, with weak/strong EU regulatory capacity on one side and weak/strong US regulatory capacity on the other side. The convergence of international financial regulation and the influence of the EU depend on the combination of EU and US regulatory capacities. The chapter ends by discussing the selection of case studies, methodology, time frame, and empirical coverage of the research.

Keywords:   literature review, state of the art, research design, variables, theoretical framework, methodology, sources
