|Samenvatting||The financial crisis that erupted in Europe in autumn 2008 resulted in an economic crisis that also severely affected many developing countries as documented in many reports. This report has selected a series of new financial laws on which the EU has decided or will decide on, made on the basis of the perceived importance for developing countries and sustainable development. It assesses those EU financial reforms and makes recommendations on how they should be improved to integrate the interests of developing countries as well as sustainability. The report Fixing Global Finance by Indian expert Kavaljit Singh was used as a background document. The impact of the selected EU financial reforms was first discussed during a SOMO expert meeting (26 May 2010). The resulting draft discussion paper has been circulated since November 2010 and was updated for this report. This report is part of a project that aims to ensure that the interests of developing countries as well as sustainable development are taken into account when the EU decides on its series of financial sector reforms. Partner organisations in the project are: AITEC (Fr), Glopolis (Czech Republic), New Economic Foundation (UK), SOMO (NL), Vedegylet (Hungary) and WEED (Germ). Colleagues from these organisations have provided comments on the draft discussion paper and will participate in activities as follow up of this report.|
