Comparative Law and Financial Regulation: Methodological Remarks

Dr. Agnese Pizzolla
Volume 3 Issue 2 Article 6
The purpose of this paper is to explore the reasons behind the absence
of comparative studies on financial regulation, in order to determine
whether a comparative approach is a suitable and/or useful method of
investigation in this field. Criticisms will move from overtaking
traditional rigid comparative law compartmentalisation – addressing in
particular, the private/public law distinction, legal families, and the
impact of globalisation on comparative studies – in order to show that
comparative studies on financial regulation are possible, but require
methodological adjustments, in line with the call for review of
traditional comparative law methodologies.
