Part of the Palgrave Macmillan Studies in Banking and Financial Institutions book series (SBFI)


This book examined the case of two European agencies in the banking sector (the European Banking Authority and the Single Resolution Board) in order to unravel relationship dynamics of National Competent Authorities at agencies’ executive level. It argues that one of the most pressing issues both European agencies face is that of maintaining equality between different subsets of countries (Euro area vs. non-Euro area/Banking Union participants and outsiders). Against this background, this chapter not only summarizes the main findings but also offers a forward-looking perspective to these issues. It reflects on how existing governance mechanisms may be enhanced in order to create a level playing field for all Member States in shaping policy outputs.
