Financial stability governance since 2008 has been a multi-layered, uneven process, leading to a substantial expansion in the size and complexity of regulatory systems. Yet, for many, including those involved in high-level policy processes during and after the crisis, it has failed to bring about the necessary systemic change. Using the case study of Australia, this project investigates how international financial stability reform has evolved in a domestic context. It finds that despite the scale of reform, the existing style of policy coordination across different areas of governance potentially limits its scope.
