CFP: Insurance Law Conference – Lisbon, Portugal


The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee, invites the submission of academic papers for the 8th AIDA Europe Conference to be held in Lisbon, Portugal on October 3-4, 2019.

This conference will bring legal scholars and practitioners together, so as to explore and discuss the legal and regulatory issues emerging from the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD), hence the topic of the call. Invited speakers will present papers which will provide insights into the legal developments affecting both (re)insurance communities and society in Europe. The goal is to provide information on recent developments in the implementation of the Insurance Distribution Directive, and, in doing so, to also provide a forum for debating and developing the law and policy in this newly emerging legal field.

We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers. We invite legal academics (including Ph.D. students) and legal practitioners to submit their manuscripts on a topic that explores any aspect of the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD).

The intersection of the Insurance Distribution Directive with other EU Directives/Regulation, International Principles and standards, or other subjects and areas of law (e.g. risk management, actuarial, economics, accounting, sociology, real estate, criminal law, etc.) is also welcome.

AIDA SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE AWARD FOR YOUNG AUTHORS The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee invites students and young academics / practitioners who are no more than 35 years old, to submit their abstracts of prospective papers for potential selection for the book and the award. Three papers from any area of the IDD will be selected for award and presentation and their authors will be waived the costs of conference fees and will be awarded the costs of economy class flights plus those of 2 nights of accommodation.
