Next Conference


Turbulent Convergence, Digitalization and Supranational Lawmaking of the European Union for Economic Development and Social Equality in the Global Player Scenario

14-15 November 2018, European Parliament, Rome, Italy

The current scenarios are composed of a decreasing number of bigger and bigger global players such as the EU, the USA, China, Russia, Mercosur and very few others. These global players are already interconnected on a global scale by key phenomena like technological convergence and international treaties: CETA, NAFTA, MERCOSUR for example. So to speak, the link among Canada (NAFTA) with EU (CETA), Mexico (NAFTA member and MERCOSUR observing member) with Brazil (MERCOSUR full member) already shape a legislative alignment in which free trade, technological standardization and shared human right and social equality policies tend to match more convergence both in digital and legal terms and more at the viability level. The emerging key challenge is not who launch new development, as the leverage of this alignment is already enormous and insofar evolutionary. The recent treaty between the EU and Japan is one more piece of evidence of the increasing convergence both in digital and legal terms.
The key evolutionary challenge and paramount goal of the conference is to be the host and hub of innovative policy modelling, policymaking, institutional strategic redesign and lawmaking for reshaping socio-economic development by shaping a triple helix of legislative design – free trade alignment – technological standardization
