Graduated in Economics & Public Affairs
PHD RESEARCHER IN ETHICS and FINANCE
at the French National Assembly
Understanding financial regulation requires binding legal and economic approaches. Beyond that, we should always consider the current state of affairs, in other words, the political context. Only at the crossroads of law, economics and politics can we understand what remains at stake. This is why my research focuses on the "functions of government and the ethical stakes of financial markets standards".
Interdisciplinary scholar, Sabrina Abib has graduated in economics at the University Paris-Dauphine (a French top ranked university in Business & Finance), then she turned to Public Affairs where she obtained a Master while working within the economic and financial department at the French Presidency (also known as Palais de l'Elysée).
Witnessing the political and social aftermaths of the financial crisis led her to start a Ph.D on regulation and ethics at the University Paris Sorbonne. Her year as a Ph.D scholar at the University of Columbia in the city of New York not only allowed her to broaden her views but has also allowed her to better compare the American and European regulatory systems dealing with the conceptualization of ethics. Sabrina Abib has presented in Paris, in November 2018, her dissertation within an International PhD Committee.

MY LATEST RESEARCH
“THE POST-DEREGULATION MEANING OF REGULATION” (2016)
What does “regulation” mean today? This term enjoys a wide array of meanings. For the purpose of this study, we will suggest and rely on one specific definition. We acknowledge that in any event the link between the variety of definitions reflects a constraint or the standardization of a choice before a given order and a set of rules. In other terms, the interactions between the political arena and the economic and financial sphere, as well as the normative issues deriving from such interactions, must be analyzed.
The political arena includes diverse regulatory bodies operating both at national (e.g. the French financial market regulatory authority AMF) and European Union levels through the European Central Bank. The economic and financial sphere refers to all activities involving trade in goods and services as well as manufacturing activities.
“FROM RISK MODELLING TO RISK OF REGULATION : HOW CAN WE THINK THE EMERGENCE OF A TOTAL AND CONTEXTUAL ETHICS ON FINANCIAL MARKETS” (2018)
Time and risk are the keys to controling the future. The short term markets are in conflict with the long term regulatory policy. If time can actually be considered as an economic resource, it can also be a biased random to establish the parameters of choice. The approach to political uncertainty is often treated as a continuous space-time approach.
From another perspective, finance has a more dynamic approach to short term risk. A work on financial transparency implies an underlying continuous T0 approach, both ex ante and ex post. The challenge is to find a balance between the use of prospective calculations and the actor’s choice. This “necessary” long term legislative approach throught the setting of the political agenda is facing a fluctuating approach of finance that involves a more flexible management of actors, particularly in terms of regulation. How risk of regulation can be explained in this case ?
