University Research Priority Program "Financial Market Regulation"  

The University Research Priority Program (URPP) Financial Market Regulation of Zurich University started on 1 January 2013. The global financial crisis has caused a political debate about stricter regulation of financial markets which is economically significant for Switzerland and particularly for Zurich as a financial center. The URPP aims to examine existing regulatory concepts and approaches in the light of their history and international rulebooks. It further intends to analyze national as well as international regulatory needs and proposals.
