The current stance of European economic and financial legislation: A graphical overview

Researchers from SAFE | House of Finance provide a comprehensive map of the main economic and financial services legislation in the European Union

A team of researchers from the Research Center SAFE at Goethe University’s House of Finance have produced a systematic graphical overview of European legislation in the areas of economics and finance. This map was commissioned by the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON). Katja Langenbucher, Professor of Private, Business and Banking Law, Marcel Gellings and Kai Jungbluth compiled the overview of the most relevant pieces of legislation in force, as well as proposals and other relevant provisions, in 14 policy areas relevant to ECON, such as banking, insurance and occupational pensions, consumer protection in financial services or European Monetary Union.

The main Directives, Regulations and Green and White Papers are mapped in an accessible way, providing a practical background source of information for those concerned with European financial and economic legislation.
