Abstract

This article seeks to contribute to the debate on how to devise an appropriate legal framework for foreign bank operations. It considers the implications of the corporate form of foreign bank operations and examines how countries can protect domestic financial systems effectively from the detrimental effects of cross-border failures. To this end, it critically reviews the various mechanisms and tools applied in a number of jurisdictions.
