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.


Datum: 16. November 2018 bis 17. November 2018
Ort: University of Lucerne, Frohburgstrasse 3, 6002 Lucerne, Room 4.B55
