    In the wake of the global financial crisis and the passage of landmark financial reform legislation in the United States, debates continue about the core objectives of regulating finance, the relative importance of competing objectives and the relative competences of competing local, national and international regulators.  The section program will assess recent reform efforts in context, to shed light on the choices inherent in determining who gets to regulate whom, how, and for whose sake.  We will consider the relationships among regulation, finance, and its economic, political and social context; and try to shift the terms of theoretical and policy debates to chart the path ahead. 


    This roundtable will explore diverse perspectives on institutional design for regulating financial services, financial markets, and financial institutions, and will complement the Section Call for Papers program in the afternoon.
