Research Handbook on Crisis Management in the Banking Sector

Research Handbooks in Financial Law series

Edited by Matthias Haentjens, Professor of Financial Law and Bob Wessels, Emeritus Professor of International Insolvency Law, Leiden University, the Netherlands

In this timely Handbook, over 30 prominent academics, practitioners and regulators from across the globe provide in-depth insights into an area of law that the recent global financial crisis has placed in the spotlight: bank insolvency law.

‘This volume is the definitive work on banking sector crisis management. It covers all recent legislative developments and it provides cognate analysis by leading experts on matters covering the whole spectrum of bank crisis management, ranging from early intervention and provision of emergency liquidity assistance by the central bank to group resolution and the workings of the Single Resolution Mechanism. Additionally, country reports of all major jurisdictions such as Australia, the US, UK, Germany, Japan and China provide comprehensive overviews of the current state. It will prove an invaluable companion to all those seeking to demystify this most complex area of legal and regulatory practice.’
– Emilios Avgouleas, University of Edinburgh, UK
