Regulation of Informal Remittances in Europe

-
Feb 2010 - Sep 2010
Master thesis This master thesis analyses how informal remittance systems are regulated in Europe. The EU Payment Services Directive, which was implemented in 2009, introduced a new regulatory framework for small-scale remittance offices. By studying decision-making at the EU-level, as well as the implementation at the national level (selection of a few cases) this paper will address how different political concerns are treated in this process.
