SAFE-LawFin Policy Workshop: Pacemaker Brussels?

When: 07 Dec 2021
Speaker: Bo Bian, Stefan Bechtold, Jens Frankenreiter, Nicolas Jabko, Jan Pieter Krahnen, Katja Langenbucher, Tobias Tröger

The Center for Advanced Studies on the Foundations of Law and Finance and the Policy Center at the Leibniz Institute SAFE jointly organize the policy workshop “Pacemaker Brussels?”.

When: Monday, 7 December 2021 - 4:00-5:30 pm CET
Where: Online (Zoom)

The „Brussels effect“, just as inter-US the „California effect“, are catchphrases to highlight how an especially strict regulatory standard might be exported globally. The EU General Data Protection Regulation provides one of the paradigm examples in academic debate, often coupled with the claim that the EU regime shapes the world. With the recent Proposal for a Regulation on Artificial Intelligence, the EU Commission, once again, aspires to contribute to global regulation. Against this background, empirical research documenting the existence (or lack) of a Brussels effect is especially interesting.

Our two speakers, Stefan Bechthold (ETH Zürich) and Jens Frankenreiter (Washington University in St. Louis), have each worked on the GDPR, with one of them seeing something of a Brussels effect, the other one more sceptical.
