Workshop Coping with Risk in Transnational Financial Markets

Modern societies are increasingly formed by social, economic and legal relations that dissolve the traditional boundaries of nation states. Markets have outgrown systems of national regulation and international policy coordination. Transnational corporations and other cross-border organizations and networks interact in new patterns and set new standards of governance. In this context, the aim of the workshop on 3rd/4th July 2014 is to bring together researchers from the areas of economics, finance, business studies and law working on transnational issues to discuss their current research.
