Conference: Big Data and Global Trade Law

The Faculty of Law will host an international conference on Big Data and Global Trade Law. The event is organized by PD Mira Burri in her role as a principal investigator of the NRP75 project ‘The Governance of Big Data in Trade Agreements’. The conference is meant to bridge the disconnected discourses on trade law and policy and data-driven innovation. With leading scholars on board and active engagement from stakeholders and policy-makers, the conference aims at an unbiased, interdisciplinary and future-oriented discussion on the multiple societal implications of Big Data and on how global trade law should be shaped to appropriately address them.
