On 18-19 June RGSL hosted academics from Australia, Cyprus, Hungary, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia and Spain to discuss protection of consumer rights. During the conference academics and practitioners reviewed consumer protection in the EU and UN frameworks. In addition, they examined country-specific examples such as consumer lending litigation in Spain, consumer bankruptcy in Slovenia, consumer credit in Lithuania, and consumer rights in Iceland’s constitutional process.
Skaidrīte Ābrama, Chairperson of the Competition Council of Latvia and Ieva Baldiņa Brūklīte, Head of Department of the Latvian Consumer Protection Centre addressed the participants.
This conference, conceptualised and curated by RGSL docent Inese Druviete was part of the RGSL Jean Monnet Project, awarded by the European Union Erasmus+ Programme. The next conference will be devoted to competition and big data and will take place during the Autumn semester.
