The research objective of this project is to carry out an analysis of the evolution of banking supervision in Spain, from its origins to the appearance of modern supervision at the end of the 20th century. Consequently, it is proposed to analyze the main phases or historical periods of supervision, the change experienced in its objectives, the main driving factors, how it was implemented, and, finally, who were its protagonists. In addition to studying the basic elements of supervision in each historical period, special attention will be paid to the interrelationships between the government, the central bank, and private banking derived from the changing regulatory framework. It is also intended to frame the Spanish case in the experience of other countries, mainly European.
