Workshop ‘Conceptualising ‘consumers’ of financial services: A new approach?’

Mind the (Housing) Wealth Gap is involved in the workshop ‘Conceptualising ‘consumers’ of financial services: A new approach?’. Professor Lorna Fox Mahony and Dr Folarin Akinbami are hosting the event at the Durham Law School on 12 April 2013.

Recent changes to the Financial Services Bill imply a significant discursive shift towards a consumer rhetoric. This workshop will explore the legal subjectivity of financial services consumers as we move into new arrangements around consumer protection, concerns about misselling, and acknowledgment of the heterogeneity of consumers. Contributors will investigate the potential impacts of the Bill on the new regulatory regime’s understanding of ‘appropriate’ modes and levels of protection for consumers across the range of financial service product types, from theoretical, policy and practice perspectives.
