Conference: Enforcing Consumer and Capital Market Law in Europe

At the International Conference on "Enforcing Consumer and Capital Market Law in Europe", which took place on 23 and 24 May 2019 at the Faculty of Law of the University of Augsburg, numerous experts discussed how various countries legally deal with the diesel emission scandal.

 

It turned out that in the USA, Australia and Brazil the enforcement of law trough sanctions of authorities and compensation of customers are already much more successful than in most European countries. Scientists, judges, but also representatives of public authorities (BaFin and ESMA) and consumer associations intensively discussed how the respective law could be improved at national and European level in order to prevent future infringements. As in data protection law, European policy-makers should perceive effective law enforcement mechanisms not as regional disadvantage, but as an economic locational advantage.

 

The conference was organised by Professor Dr. Thomas M.J. Möllers (University of Augsburg) and Professor Dr. Beate Gsell (LMU Munich) and is a project of the Jean-Monnet-Centre of Excellence "European Integration – Rule of Law and Enforcement (INspiRE)", funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
