Regulation of insider trading has changed dramatically in the past few years. In reaction to highly publicized insider trading scandals and the internationalization of securities markets, all European countries have recently either strengthened their existing rules (France and the United Kingdom) or implemented new rules (Denmark, Greece, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg and Italy).

The United States continues to refine its insider trading regulations, and Japan has recently enacted legislation in this field. A a result of the increasingly international nature of insider trading, supervisory authorities throughout the world now closely co-ordinate their efforts.;Drawing from the experience of law professors, governmental officials and practising lawyers, this book explores the regulations of 18 countries in Europe, the United States and Japan, as well as the EC Directive Co-ordinating Regulations on Insider Dealing and the Council of Europe's Convention on Insider Trading.

The book is aimed at practising lawyers, legislators, academics and international business and finance professionals. Combining legal doctrine and practical information, it analyzes for each legal system how insider trading is defined and controlled. It also addresses other stock-related infractions and international law issues such as jurisdiction and international co-operation.
