Post-crisis efforts to extend bankruptcy-resolution techniques to protect the stability of the financial system have been insufficient. A large reason for this failure is that regulators have confused bankruptcy’s traditional goals of resolving troubled firms individually with the need to resolve critical elements of the financial system to ensure its continued operation as a ”system”. This requires resolving troubled firms collectively, as well as resolving securities-trading markets and the infrastructure that serves to facilitate that trading. The Lecture will explain these problems and will examine how to design more effective resolution-based regulation.

Professor Schwarcz is the Stanley A. Star Professor of Law & Business at Duke University, founding director of Duke’s interdisciplinary Global Financial Markets Center, and Senior Fellow of the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI). See https://law.duke.edu/fac/schwarcz/. He has been the Leverhulme Visiting Professor at the University of Oxford, Visiting Professor at the University of Geneva Faculty of Law, and is currently the Distinguished Visiting Professor at University College London (UCL) Faculty of Laws.
