Abstract

Starting the 1st of January 2011, the European Union has reorganised its system of financial regulation and supervision by installing several supervisory bodies. The background of these decisions and the main characteristics within the wider institutional and political system of financial supervision deserve attention, as well as the analysis of their legal powers.
