On November 28, 2018, the University of Groningen and the Netherlands Institute for Law and Governance (NILG) will host a PhD workshop entitled “New Directions of Law and Governance”. This doctoral workshop precedes the NILG Tenth annual congress which this year is organized by the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen and it will be dedicated to the discussion of the
legal implications of blockchain technology.

PhD candidates working on the governance of peer-to-peer networks who
did not submit their abstracts to the general blockchain conference at an earlier stage are strongly encouraged to apply for this PhD workshop. Blockchain is, nonetheless, not the only “new direction” of law and governance. Rather, we are witnessing broader shifts which are not only explained by technology but also by novel privatization trends, the rise in populism, decreasing public trust in government and EU institutions and the refugee crisis. This inclusive doctoral
workshop invites submissions on these other perspectives and new directions of law and governance. Selected participants will be given the opportunity to present their research projects to a small audience and receive constructive feedback from each other and from senior experts from different fields of law.
