This chapter discusses the various laws, regulations, and comparable measures that were passed or proposed in response to the financial crisis in the EU and elsewhere. It covers the responses of the de Larosière Report, G20, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, and the Financial Stability Board. The de Larosière Report, for instance, was commissioned by the President of the European Commission in October 2008 and delivered on 25 February 2009. The report sought ‘to give advice on the future of European financial regulation and supervision’ and has formed the basis of many of the responses to the financial crisis at EU level. The G20 issued a comprehensive communiqué on the crisis at the London ‘Summit’ of 2 April 2009, covering a number of macro-economic and other ‘architectural’ issues.
