The Laboratory of Excellence for Financial Regulation (LabEx-ReFi) is a research centre dedicated to the evaluation of regulation policies, with its main objectives being to improve the understanding of financial systems and regulations’ implications, with a view of providing public authorities with independent academic expertise and guidelines for actions.

Focusing on the 6 founding states (Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy) plus the UK, the students will thus identify, encode and characterize the pieces of financial legislation in the EU6 founding states plus UK from 1947 to present day.  They will also assess EU convergence to draw specific country profiles and compare UE and US in a long-term perspective.
