When asked to think of a particular industry that operates in a free market, many tend to mention banking and financial services. But contrary to popular belief, banking and finance is among the industries with the most extensive and detailed regulation. And since regulation ultimately determines the distribution of risk and reward among the various stakeholders involved (the financial firms, their employees, the regulators and the public) - it also remains an area of fierce debate with strong ideological fault lines and political controversies. Not least since the stakes are astronomical – for example, millions of people in Europe and elsewhere are still suffering from the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
 These high stakes, the vast ideological differences and distributional consequences raise important question on the factors at play in shaping banking and financial system around the world:
  • How do financial systems vary around the world, and how does this variety relate to macro-social factors, governance frameworks, regulation and political systems?
  • How are financial systems maintained and transformed? What political, social and technological forces promote stability or change? Who has the power to influence outcomes?
  • What developments in political, social and technological areas are likely to transform the global and national financial systems in the coming years and beyond?
The course “Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Banking & Financial Services” seeks to provide answers these questions from an interdisciplinary perspective, where explanations are sought, compared and critically discussed from different academic perspectives (including economics, management, institutional theory and international political economy.
