Fintech and Payment System

Summary:

In the last few years, the world has experienced a technology revolution in financial services.

At the same time, as such a regulated and complex market, the potential for policymakers to balance its forces towards the public interest is huge. As are the risks if the regulatory intervention is not systemically fine tuned. In this research project, we explore the systemic effects of regulatory interventions in the financial market to promote competition, innovation, and financial inclusion.

Project:

Freedom of expression and information online

Research track:

Civil and Human Rights on the Internet

Summary:

Web 2.0 began in a world of zero marginal cost for information distribution and where the emergence of aggregators enabled user-generated content to flourish in content platforms. From that moment on, freedom of expression and information gained a stream of new nuances with complexity and concrete micro and macro impacts on people's lives. 


From identity and belonging to the bread and butter of the productive sector to the fate of democracies, how we deal with the right to free speech has never been so critical to everyday life. The Freedom of Expression and Information Online project aims to untangle the impacts of new technology on these basic fundamental rights and their repercussions on everything else: from business to politics and back to the future of information technology.
