Thesis Title

Cross-Border Cooperation and Coordination of Bank Resolution


Summary of Research

In bank crisis management, an unsolved challenge is how bank authorities should develop systems that ensure effective cross-border cooperation and improve the efficiency of resolution. This research aims at finding effective solutions and incentives for cross-border cooperation, promoting coordination of future potential cross-border bank resolution to have efficient outcomes.

This thesis will define efficiency in the context of cross-border bank resolution, then it will analyse how cross-border cooperation could be facilitated to achieve higher resolution efficiency. This research will apply a Game Theory and Law and Economics approach to this problem. It will also do Monte Carlo experiment to create some artificial bank models to test the expected effectiveness of my proposed cooperative resolution approaches.
