Panel I: Mutual Recognition at the Crossroads
Panel II: The Political Economy of Extraterritoriality
Panel III: Systemic Risk and Enforcement


With the transatlantic and global financial reform processes reaching their apex, the question of extraterritoriality has become more important-and complex-than ever.  In an array of areas-from cross-border banking, derivatives and clearinghouses, to economic sanctions and sovereign bonds-financial authorities are exporting their policy preferences, often through domestic financial infrastructure, in order to support financial and political objectives. 

In this conference, academics and policymakers will explore in what ways regulators and economic authorities fashion rules that extend beyond their borders to achieve national and international objectives.   Topics of discussion will include how and in what way financial diplomacy is conducted, what are the best and most effective instruments of harmonizing cross-border rules and enforcing domestic ones, how these tactics play themselves out for lawyers and regulators, and what extraterritoriality means in a world where markets are being used for both macro- prudential as well as political ends.
