  4. Research Handbook on the Regulation of Mutual Funds

    Research Handbook on the Regulation of Mutual Funds

    Edited by William A. Birdthistle, John Morley
    The growth of mutual funds has been a truly global phenomenon and deserves a broad international analysis. Local political economies and legal regimes have created different regulatory preferences for the oversight of these funds, and academics, public officials, and legal practitioners wishing to understand the global investing environment need an appreciation for these international differences. This Handbook addresses these and several other issues concerning mutual funds. The contributors, leading scholars in the field of investment law from around the world, provide a current legal analysis of funds from a variety of perspectives and using an array of methodologies that consider the large fundamental questions governing the role and regulation of investments funds as well identity and behavior of investors and issues surrounding less orthodox funds, such as money market funds, ETFs, and private funds.

    The Elgar Companion to Post-Conflict Transition

    Edited by Hans-Joachim Giessmann, Roger Mac Ginty, Beatrix Austin, Christine Seifert

These questions are the focus of this comparative study written by a mix of scholars and practitioners. This state-of-the-art volume identifies patterns in political transitions, but is largely unconvinced that these transitions bring about real change to the underlying structures of society.
