Abstract

The Basel capital accords were established by the banking supervisory authorities of the G10 countries, members of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, and were applied to the international banks based in these countries. But, do the Basel accords bring more banking stability to emerging countries? In fact, several studies showed that economic and institutional features of these countries, may contribute to an inefficient prudential impact of capital requirements on banks’ behaviour. These arguments will be examined throughout this paper.
