Book Talk: Blockchain Regulation and Governance in Europe
Blockchain Regulation and Governance in Europe
20 February 2024 (Tuesday), 5:30 – 6:30 PM Hong Kong Time via Zoom
In Blockchain Regulation and Governance in Europe, Michèle Finck examines the relationship between blockchain technology and EU law and introduces the theme of blockchain governance. The book provides a general introduction to blockchains as both a regulatable and a regulatory technology and outlines the interaction between distributed ledger technology and specific areas of EU law, such as the General Data Protection Regulation. It will be of great interest and immensely pertinent to anyone interested in EU law, the relationship between law, innovation and technology, and technology governance.
