University of Gothenburg

7-8 March 2019

The research conference shall take stock of the current rather fragmented regulatory approaches and produce the very first, interdisciplinary grounded, comprehensive appraisal of a future “Common European Law on Investment Screening”. Due to the conference’s comprehensive approach, it is expected to influence the broader debate on the EU’s upcoming regulation of this matter.

The research conference is addressed to participants from academia as well as to representatives from government, business, and civil society.
