Abstract and Keywords

Historical institutionalism features extensively in the study of banking and financial regulation in Europe. This chapter reviews scholarship that explicitly, implicitly or inadvertently draws heavily on that tradition’s central tenets. The authors find that historical institutionalism can help explain the emergence, persistence, and evolution of distinct kinds of financial systems in Europe, as well as the pattern and effects of European financial integration. However, they find there is considerable untapped potential for historical institutionalism as an analytical approach for studying European financial market integration and regulation.

Keywords: European financial systems, European Union, financial regulation, financial systems, historical institutionalism
