The law and the "Sharing Economy": Regulating Online Market Platforms
Master class in London
In our series of fortnightly events, IE Professor, Dr. Antonios Kouroutakis, will speak about the significant change that Uber, Airbnb, and other online platforms have brought in the economic paradigm at a global scale. Such platforms connected peers all over the world and bypassed state regulations, forming what we call the “sharing economy”. Furthermore, these platforms brought significant disruption within a number of industries. The topic of this presentation is focused on the challenges that sharing economy poses to regulators around the world with the aim of highlighting best practices. The master class will be followed by a networking cocktail where you will be able to continue discussions and meet IE alumni.
