That different types of financial services and products continue to spring up in the financial sector of many countries is indicative of the changing landscape of the financial services industry globally. Equally important, as indicators of the evolving trajectory of financial services regulation, are increases in the number of countries where universal banking is practiced and in numbers of parent and subsidiary companies providing different types of financial services and products. This book is written against that background. A central thesis pursued in the book is that until there is a longer track record of experience with unified regulators, it is difficult to come to firm conclusions about the restructuring process of regulators, and the optimal internal structure of such agencies. In addition, the book examines the concept of an independent regulator, showing how this concept, as a corollary to the concept of a unified regulator, could strengthen the regulatory and institutional framework for financial services supervision if accountability were to be part of such a framework.

English summary: As an answer to the financial crisis of 2008/2009, the European Union established the European System of Financial Supervision (ESFS) starting on 1 January 2011. Resulting from this development, the nationally fragmented financial supervision gained a European dimension. Natalia Kohtamaki analyzes the new institutional structure and discusses the legal questions which have arisen due to the reform. German description: Die Einfuhrung der neuen institutionellen Struktur der europaischen Aufsichtsbehorden gehort zu den bedeutendsten Reformen der Europaischen Union nach der Finanzkrise von 2008/2009. Zum 1. Januar 2011 entstanden drei EU-Aufsichtsagenturen, die fur die mikroprudentielle Finanzaufsicht zustandig sind, sowie der bei der Europaischen Zentralbank angesiedelte Europaische Ausschuss fur Systemrisiken, der sich mit der makroprudentiellen Finanzaufsicht des europaischen Finanzbinnenmarktes befasst. Natalia Kohtamaki analysiert den Reformprozess und bietet eine Gesamtschau des neuen Finanzaufsichtssystems an. Dabei untersucht sie die Rechtsfragen, die durch die Reform insbesondere im Hinblick auf die Unabhangigkeit und Legitimation der Aufsichtsagenturen aufgeworfen werden.

The oil boom of the last three years has accelerated growth in financial market activities across the Gulf region and in Islamic financial and banking activities overall. The countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE) are one of the fastest growing parts of the world economy. Burgeoning wealth has strengthened the demand for more sophisticated financial services. Rising transaction volumes have made a compelling case for building the infrastructure to expand services while justifying the cost. These investments in financial market capability have accelerated the development of a financial services industry in the region and introduced new instruments, prompting banking and financial institutions to set up in the Gulf.This book examines the Gulf region as a financial center and an economic power hub, focusing on its role in the world economy and capital markets. In particular, the authors address the issue of whether wealth alone is enough to create an international financial center. They also assess how many financial centers the Gulf can support and who has the best chance of making the transformation from regional player to global leader. This timely book is the first to provide an overall analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the region, assessing its global aspirations and exploring long-term trends. "The Gulf region has become the epicentre of economic and financial progress in the Middle East, and a systemic player in the world financial markets. Yet not much is known about the Gulf economies —their financial systems, the wealth they are generating and how they are spending and investing it, and the impact of their growing financial and economic power on the global economy. This book by experts in their respective fields is an important and overdue contribution and a must-read for those with an interest in the Gulf region. For what happens in the Gulf will have a significant influence on the entire Middle East and the international financial markets." —Dr. Mohsin Khan, Director, Middle East and Central Asia Department, International Monetary Fund "This extremely useful book on the financial might of the countries of the Gulf region is essential to understand the rapid rise and development of what is certain to be, very soon, one of the most important financial centers in the world." —Dr. Mario I. Blejer, former director, Centre for Central Banking Studies, Bank of England; former governor, Central Bank of Argentina "This ably edited volume could not have come at a more appropriate time, as the traditional financial markets go through turbulence unseen in decades." —Dr. Abdel Aziz Abu Hamad Aluwaisheg, Minister Plenipotentiary and Director, Economic Integration Department, Gulf Cooperation CouncilContributors include Ahmet Akarli (Goldman Sachs), Alexander Böhmer (OECD), Florence Eid (Pantera Capital LP),Tarek Fadlallah (Nomura), Ghaleb Faidi (ILMAM), Andrea Goldstein (OECD), Daniel Hanna (Standard Chartered Bank), Michael Hume (Lehman Brothers), Stephen Jen (Morgan Stanley),Vanessa Rossi (Chatham House and Oxford Economics), and Andrew Rozanov (State Street Global Advisors).

"Land Law Reform examines the wide-spread efforts to reform land law in developing countries and countries in transition, drawing in particular upon the experience of the World Bank and the Rural Development Institute. The book considers the role of land law reform in the development process and analyzes how the World Bank has sought to support these legal changes in client countries. It reviews the experience with reform of laws affecting land access and rights in achieving gender equity, identifies opportunities for reinforcing environmentally sustainable development through land law reform, and examines from both growth and poverty alleviation perspectives the effectiveness of reforms to formalize property rights and liberalize land markets. The concluding chapter recommends some basic priorities for land law reforms. John W. Bruce is a senior counsel in the Legal Vice-Presidency of the World Bank, and a former director of the Land Tenure Center of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has published extensively on land law and land policy in developing countries. Renee Giovarelli, David Bledsoe, Leonard Rolfes, and Robert Mitchell are staff attorneys with the Rural Development Institute of Seattle, Washington, a nonprofit organization that promotes and advises on land-related policy and legal reform in developing and transition countries. All have done fieldwork and advised extensively on land law reform and have published widely on this topic."

Efforts to launder money and finance terrorism have been evolving rapidly in recent years in response to heightened countermeasures. The international community has witnessed the use of increasingly sophisticated methods to move illicit funds through financial systems across the globe and has acknowledged the need for improved multilateral cooperation to fight these criminal activities. The World Bank and International Monetary Fund have developed this guide to help countries understand the new international standards. It will hopefully serve as a comprehensive source of practical information for countries to fight money laundering and terrorist financing. It discusses the problems caused by these crimes, the specific actions countries need to take to address them, and the role international organizations, such as the Bank and the IMF, play in the process. This guide is a tool for countries to establish and improve their legal and institutional frameworks and their preventive measures according to international standards and best practices. -- From Foreword (p. ix).

For nearly forty years, following the collapse of Indonesia's parliamentary system, Indonesia's once independent legal institutions were transformed into dedicated instruments of a powerful elite and allowed to sink into a deep mire of corruption and malfeasance. Legal process was devastated far beyond the capacity of any simple effort at reconstruction by post-Suharto governments. Indonesia's problems in this respect surpass those of other countries in the region compelled by economic crisis to re-examine institutional structures. The works reprinted in this collection constitute a case study over time of legal decay and the rise of reform interests in one of the most complex countries in the world. Written during a period of more than thirty years, beginning in the early 1960s, the essays trace several themes in the legal history of modern Indonesia. They make clear, however, that legal history is seldom that alone, but rather, like law itself, is largely derivative, fundamentally imbedded in the interest, ideas, purposes, and contentions of local political, social, and economic power.

Welche Bedingungen lassen Völker gerecht und friedlich zusammenleben? Unter welchen Umständen sind Kriege gerechtfertigt? Welche Leitlinien müssen gegeben sein für Organisationen, die eine gerechte Gesellschaft von Völkern mit gleichen Rechten herzustellen vermögen? In acht Grundsätzen für eine gerechte internationale Ordnung entwickelt der amerikanische Philosoph John Rawls einen hypothetischen "Vertrag der Gesellschaft der Völker". Das jüngste Buch von John Rawls ist nach A Theory of Justice 1971, dt. 1975) und Political Liberalism (1993, dt. 1998) ein weiteres wichtiges Werk des bedeutenden amerikanischen Philosophen. Die Originalausgabe (The Law of Peoples, 1999) hat zu heftigen Kontroversen geführt.
