During and after the financial crisis in the EU, the European institutions established the European Supervisory authorities (ESAs). The ESAs are three agencies with the main task to regulate the financial sector and its hazardous behaviour that caused the economic crash of 2008/2009. Previous research, however, shows that the legislative output of these Authorities is relatively industry-friendly, due to the large mobilization of financial sector interest groups. My PhD project aims to map and explain interest group involvement in the ESAs, and the effect it has on legitimacy of the EU.
