Brill Research Perspectives


The second of a two-volume project, this book investigates the governance, operation, and policy outcomes of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision to determine its legitimacy, based on the principles of reasoned decision making, transparency, and accountability. It addresses whether the BCBS gives reasons for its decisions, whether its governance and decision-making procedures are transparent, how it consults the public in its policy-making process, and how and by whom the Committee's performance is monitored. The author argues that the BCBS has become a more legitimate institution over time, but that reforms can be made in various areas. Part 1 of the project reviews the literature on the BCBS and introduces its governance and functions, as well as theories of legitimacy and its meaning for the global governance of banking and how it could be assessed.
