Summary: The European Union’s (EU) financial stability framework is being markedly strengthened. This is taking place on the heels of a severe financial crisis owing to weaknesses in the banking system interrelated with sovereign difficulties in the euro area periphery.

Developments regarding the financial stability may assist in the continuing evolution of the European financial stability architecture.
