Call for Papers: Economic Governance of Data-driven Markets Workshop

The Tilburg Law and Economics Center and the Governance and Regulation Chair at University Paris-Dauphine, PSL Research University will organize a two-day Workshop on “Economic Governance of Data-driven Markets” at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, on October 12 and 13, 2017.

We aim to discuss the specific problems that arise on markets and in political and legal systems through the ongoing process of datafication. Once such a problem and the optimal response/intervention are identified, the enforcement institution must be endogenized: How should data-driven markets or political systems be governed? By national or supranational regulation (public ordering)? Or by self-governance of industry-participants in some form (private ordering)? Scholars from various backgrounds, including institutional economics, industrial organization, and law & economics – and extending to neighboring disciplines such as political science, management, and information science will meet in a pleasant atmosphere to advance our knowledge.

Symposium: Law & Religion Meets Law & Economics

Villanova’s Charles Widger School of Law presents a symposium entitled “Law & Religion Meets Law & Economics” on March 17, 2017 from 9am – 4pm.

Scholars of law, religion and economics often see themselves as working in separate fields with few connections between them. This conference will explore Pope Francis’ teachings on market economics to bring these two bodies of legal scholarship into dialogue. Discussion will center around Pope Francis’ theological critique and assessment of global capitalism, and reaction to that critique from different of legal, economic and religious perspectives. The conference will also explore the traditional role of religious language in constructing legal duties and obligations, how law and economics has secularized this branch of law, and conclude by analyzing the concept of liberty in economic, legal and religious thought.
