Democracy and the Financial Order: Legal Perspectives


2-3 September 2015

Keynote: Prof. Henrik Enderlein (Hertie School of Governance)

How to reconcile democracy with a market-oriented financial order? This question has been brought to the fore by global debt and monetary crises of the last decade. The answers emerge along two dimensions. On one hand, it is feared that favoring the interests of the market will do harm to democracy. On the other hand, there is a growing belief that democratic decision-making may undermine the financial stability or lead to unsound policy. The workshop addresses the role of law in this debate. Each paper will approach the role of law from a particular theoretical angle. In addition, each paper will choose a case study or an issue area which will base it in the realities of contemporary financial and legal orders.

The workshop is organized by the Cluster Project on the Exercise of Public Authority of the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in cooperation with the German Law Journal.
