This guide is meant to help you find laws and information on issues related to international finance; the goal is to provide useful (but not exhaustive) resources. You may also find the sources in the Regulation of Financial Institutions guide helpful.

While conducting your research, you may want to explore:
Industry information for external data informing international finance
International organizations focusing on issues of international finance
Practice and study aids, i.e., treatises
News sources, including blogs
