The University of Turin Department of Law and Collegio Carlo Alberto, with the support of the International Economic Law Interest Group of the European Society of International Law (ESIL), are hosting a workshop on International Economic Law in the Era of Distributed Ledger Technology on 9 April 2019 in Turin.

The emergence of new technologies within the rapidly developing digital economy, such as Distributed Ledger Technology (commonly referred to as Blockchain), have the potential to transform the current international regulatory framework that governs economic transactions. Although these new technologies are not yet established in international practice, their current development demands closer analysis of the implications for global governance.

The workshop will consider topics such as:

➢ Theoretical legal approaches to digital governance and Distributed Ledger Technology;
➢ Regulatory responses to cryptocurrencies and their impact on international economic law;
➢ The impact of ‘smart contracts’ on international economic regimes;
➢ New technologies and the transformation of international economic dispute resolution.
