The Tilburg Law and Economics Center and the Governance and Regulation Chair at University Paris-Dauphine, PSL Research University presents a conference on “Economic Governance of Data-driven Markets” at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, on Oct. 12-13, 2017. Paper submissions should be made to TILECgovernance[@]uvt.nl by May 14, 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.
