The course is divided into three lecture sections. The first section is devoted to a thorough overview of the European Community's monetary policy. In addition to Community legislation concerning exchange and investment controls, we examine issues relating to taxation of cross-border flows of capital income and transnational financial crime, such as illegal money laundering. The second part of the course is concerned with the study of legislation concerning the integration of banking, insurance and investment services. We will examine past and present legislation in this area as well as forward-looking strategies for the aforementioned services. These will further be put into perspective through EU law on consumer protection and competition in financial services. The third part of the course focuses on the provisions of the Maastricht Treaty which deal with the creation of the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU).
