About EuFIMAR

Jean Monnet Chair:
EU Financial and Insurance Markets Regulation (EuFIMAR)

The Chair aims to boost the knowledge and to understand EU financial and insurance markets through a multi-step approach.

The JM Chair in EU Financial and Insurance Markets Regulation (EuFIMAR) builds on the assumption that the increasing number of rules regarding EU financial sectors can significantly affect the activity of jurists, such as lawyers and judges, as well as that of consumers, firms and other professionals and financial services users. The Chair aims to boost the knowledge and to understand EU financial and insurance markets through a multi-step approach. To this purpose, the project implements:

• a curricular course in EU financial markets law, redesigned to focus on the post crisis reform of European financial services industries (methods: lecture and case studies; language: Italian; target: students of the Social Science School and Erasmus students).

• a curricular course in EU insurance law, redesigned to focus on the European regulation of the insurance sector (methods: lecture and case studies; language: Italian; target: students of the Social Science School and Erasmus students);

• a revamped “e-learning” course in “EU financial and insurance markets regulation”, focused on EU retail investor protection (methods: video-lecture and case studies; language: English; target: students of the Social Science School and Erasmus students);

• 4 seminars per year on emerging trends on EU financial and insurance policy given by the international academic staff (target: students enrolled in one of the three courses);

• an annual conference on selected issues concerning financial and insurance products governance in the EU (target: students at large, managers, members of governmental and non-governmental organisations and supervisory authorities at national and supranational level);

• a web site contains: video lectures; a selection of working papers, cases and material on EU retail investor protection; video & slide streaming of the annual conference;

• cross-sectors innovative research activities bringing together the EU regulation from the financial and insurance sectors.
