Workshop on “Economic Governance of Data-driven Markets”

By Jens Prüfer

The Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC) and the Governance and Regulation Chair (GovReg) 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.

They 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 pleasent atmosphere to advance our knowledge.

Keynote Speakers:

• Yochai Benkler (Harvard)
• Paul Seabright (Toulouse)
• Joshua Tucker (NYU)
• Marshall Van Alstyne (Boston U)

Important Dates:

The deadline for submissions is May 14, 2017. The call for papers is here. Further details are here.
