European capital markets law has developed rapidly in recent years. The former directives have been replaced by regulations and numerous implementing legal acts aimed at ensuring a level playing field across the EU. The financial crisis has given further impetus to the development of a European supervisory structure. This book systematises the European law and examines the underlying concepts from a broadly interdisciplinary perspective. National experiences in selected Member States – Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom – are also explored. The first chapter deals with the foundations of capital markets law in Europe, the second explains the basics, and the third examines the regime on market abuse. Chapter four explores the disclosure system and chapter five the roles of intermediaries, such as financial analysts, rating agencies and proxy advisers. Short selling and high frequency trading is described in chapter six. Chapter seven deals with financial services and chapter eight explains compliance and corporate governance in investment firms. Chapter nine illustrates the regulation of benchmarks. Finally, chapter ten deals with public takeovers. Throughout the book emphasis is placed on legal practice, and frequent reference is made to the key decisions of supervisory authorities and courts.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Jura - Zivilrecht / Handelsrecht, Gesellschaftsrecht, Kartellrecht, Wirtschaftsrecht, Note: 14,5, Eberhard-Karls-Universitat Tubingen (Juristische Fakultat), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Nicht zuletzt durch die jetzige Wirtschaftskrise hat sich gezeigt, dass das Aktien- und Kapitalmarktrecht stets anpassungs-, wandelungs- und reformbedurftig ist.(1) Doch gibt es Bereiche des Aktien- und Kapitalmarktrechts in denen uber Reformen nicht erst seit kurzer Zeit, sondern bereits seit Jahrzehnten diskutiert und gestritten wird. Zu nennen ist hier insbesondere die Vorschrift des 23 Abs.5 AktG(2), in der das Prinzip der aktienrechtlichen Satzungs - strenge" verkorpert ist. So regelt 23 Abs.5, dass die Satzung (scil: einer AG) von den Vorschriften des Gesetzes (scil: Aktiengesetz) nur abweichen kann, wenn dies ausdrucklich zugelassen ist. Erganzende Bestimmungen der Satzung sind zulassig, es sei denn, dass das Gesetz (scil: Aktiengesetz) eine abschliessende Regelung enthalt." Da solche Ausnahmeregelungen im Aktiengesetz jedoch kaum vorhanden sind, (3) wird schnell deutlich, dass 23 Abs.5(4) zu einer erheblichen Einschrankung der Gestaltungsfreiheit bei Aktiengesellschaften fuhrt. Diese werden nahezu dem gesamten kodifizierten Aktienrecht unterworfen. Auch war die Regelung des 23 Abs.5 mit ihrer einschneidenden Wirkung zuletzt erst Thema des 67. Deutschen Juristentags(5), welcher sich mit der Frage beschaftigt hat, ob sich nicht besondere Regeln fur borsennotierte und geschlossene Gesellschaften empfehlen?."

Responding to the growing importance of economic reasoning in legal scholarship, this innovative work provides an essential introduction to the economic tools which can usefully be employed in legal reasoning. It is geared specifically towards those without a great deal of exposure to economic thinking and provides law students, legal scholars and practitioners with a practical toolbox to shape their writing, understanding and case preparation. The book’s clear focus on economic methods poses a refreshing change to conventional textbooks in this area, which tend to focus on content-related theories. Recognising that it is often difficult to derive adequate conclusions for legal arguments without first understanding the methodological limitations of economic studies, this book provides a comprehensive coverage of the most important economic concepts in order to bridge this gap. These include: • game theory • public choice and social choice theory • behavioural economics • empirical research design • basic statistics. Owing to its concise and accessible style, Economic Methods for Lawyers will provide an invaluable companion for legal scholars or practitioners who wish to utilise economic methods for developing legal argument.

EU Securities and Financial Markets Regulation

The Global Financial Crisis has re-ordered how the EU intervenes in the EU financial market, both with respect to regulation and with respect to supervision. After 5 years of a behemoth reform agenda, the new landscape is now clear. Rule-making power has decisively moved to the EU and radical reforms have been made to the organization of supervision. EU Securities and Financial Markets Regulation provides the first comprehensive, critical, and contextual account of the vast new rule-book which now applies to the EU financial market in the aftermath of the seismic reforms which have followed the financial crisis. Topics covered in-depth include the AIFMD, EMIR, the Short Selling Regulation, the new market abuse and transparency regimes, the rating agency regime, the UCITS IV-VI reforms, and MiFID II/MiFIR; the analysis is wide-reaching, extending to secondary legislation and relevant soft law. The book also examines the far-reaching institutional changes which have followed and considers in detail the role and impact of the European Securities and Markets Authority and the potential impact of the Single Supervisory Mechanism for euro area banks on the supervision of the EU financial market. EU Securities and Financial Markets Regulation is the third edition of the highly successful and authoritative monograph first published as EC Securities Regulation. Almost entirely recast and re-written from the 2008 second edition to reflect the changes wrought by the Global Financial Crisis, it adopts the in-depth contextual and analytical approach of earlier editions and so considers the market, political, international, institutional, and constitutional context of the new regulatory and supervisory regime, and the underlying forces which have (and will continue to) shape it.

France and the Spanish Civil War

In this wide-ranging study of French intellectuals who represented the Spanish Civil War as it was happening and in its immediate aftermath, Martin Hurcombe explores the ways in which these individuals addressed national anxieties and shaped the French political landscape. Bringing together reportage, essays, and fiction by French supporters of Franco's Nationalists and of the Spanish Republic, Hurcombe shows the multifaceted ways in which that conflict impacted upon French political culture. He argues that French cultural representations of the war often articulated a utopian image of the Nationalists or of the Spanish Republic that served as models behind which the radical right or the radical left in France might mobilise. His book will be of interest not only to scholars of French literature and culture but also to those interested in how events unfolding in Spain found an echo in the political landscapes of other countries.
