Aims and Scope

Banner: Great Financial Crisis.Since its inception in 1992, the Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance has provided an authoritative and scholarly platform for international research in financial regulation and compliance. The journal is at the intersection between academic research and the practice of financial regulation, with distinguished past authors including senior regulators, central bankers and even a Prime Minister.
Financial crises, predatory practices, internationalization and integration, the increased use of technology and financial innovation are just some of the changes and issues that contemporary financial regulators are grappling with. These challenges and changes hold profound implications for regulation and compliance, ranging from macro-prudential to consumer protection policies. The journal seeks to illuminate these issues, is pluralistic in approach and invites scholarly papers using any appropriate methodology.

Accordingly, the journal welcomes submissions from finance, law, economics and interdisciplinary perspectives. A broad spectrum of research styles, sources of information and topics (e.g. banking laws and regulations, stock market and cross border regulation, risk assessment and management, training and competence, competition law, case law, compliance and regulatory updates and guidelines) are appropriate. All submissions are double-blind refereed and judged on academic rigour, originality, quality of exposition and relevance to policy and practice.

Once accepted, individual articles are typeset, proofed and published online as the Version of Record within an average of 32 days, so that articles can be downloaded and cited earlier.

Publication of the Special Issue: Policy responses to the Great Financial Crisis Guest Edited by Charles Enoch, Tom Huertas, David Llewellyn, Maria Nieto

The Great Financial Crisis has triggered an ongoing assessment of what went wrong, and what can be done going forward to prevent a similar financial crisis. This assessment has driven a broad policy response in the realms of monetary and fiscal policy and financial regulation and supervision. To date, the policy response reflects a common recognition that the numerous and far-reaching benefits of financial integration are not without risks, in particular, the risk of contagion and the possibility of a landscape of future domestic, regional and global systemic crisis.

This special issue, published in two parts, selected a number of new articles that evaluate both the assessments made and actions taken by policymakers. In additon, authors of the special issue met for one-day conference at the University of Oxford, to present and discuss their papers, and share their expertise.
