This chapter presents an overview of the peculiarities of the banking sector and the principal tools states have at their disposal for regulating it. It also addresses the challenges states faced in the period after 1973 when liberalization of capital and currency markets, computerization, and a telecommunications revolution fundamentally altered world capital flows, thus creating new banking opportunities and risks. Four case studies are presented which follow form the empirical core of the book. They follow the same structure for each country by providing a brief historical background of the banking and regulatory systems, a description of the specific new challenges, a description of the sectoral policy network, a narrative, and a concluding analysis.

Keywords:   banking sector, banking regulation, states, banking system, liberalization of capital, currency markets
