WU Rese­arch Group Meeting

Digital plat­forms such as YouTube, Face­book, Amazon, Airbnb and Uber are driving factors of economic, tech­nical and social deve­lop­ment. By crea­ting a network between indi­vi­duals and resources, they multiply the possi­bi­li­ties of exch­an­ging goods and services, pave the way for new (often hybrid) constel­la­tions between provi­ders and users and open up new markets. At the same time, their disrup­tive busi­ness models displace esta­blished insti­tu­tions and inter­me­di­a­ries, so that market struc­tures and value chains are profoundly changed. There­fore, digital plat­forms pose diverse chal­lenges to our economic, social and legal systems.Against this back­ground, the WU Rese­arch Group Meeting "Legal Impli­ca­tions of the Plat­form Economy" is dedi­cated to analy­sing and discus­sing the legal chal­lenges of the advan­cing Plat­form Economy.
