Conference: Digital and Intelligent Europe: EU Citizens and the Challenges of New Technologies

On 1 and 2 April 2020, ERC project members Erlis Themeli and Emma van Gelder co-organized the conference ‘Digital and Intelligent Europe: EU Citizens and the Challenges of New Technologies for Civil Justice’, together with Anna van Duin and Rachel Rietveld (University of Amsterdam). The two-day conference revolved around EU citizens in their search for justice in an increasingly digitized world. Digital technologies can reduce barriers to access to justice by offering more affordable, swifter and simpler solutions. Key notes were delivered by Natali Helberger and Tania Sourdin and the three panels evolved around the topics of digital and intelligent out of court procedure, digital and intelligent justice solutions for supporting the court, and digital and intelligent courts. The conference brought together academics and practitioners from around the world and resulted in vivid discussions and a lot of food for thought. We will prepare a full conference report in the upcoming days.

Erlis Themeli was invited as a guest lecturer at the Moscow State Law University (MSAL) from 11 to 19 May 2019. This invitation was supported by an Erasmus+ grant of the European Union. Erlis delivered a series of lectures on international commercial courts. The audience showed considerable interest in the topic and in particular on its significance for the Russian legal landscape. Erlis had also the possibility to have meetings with colleagues from the MSAL, which will serve as a collaboration bridge for the future.
