Education - 2015

gLAWcal seeks to provide training through conferences, workshops and events, to a wide range of stakeholders, at all levels of society.  We believe that, along with the objective of producing high quality and relevant academic research, it is of paramount importance to share our expertise and disseminate our results.  This is also possible thanks to an active network of several collaborators and contacts across the European Union and Asia. Our network comprises a rich cross-section of disciplines and sectors, officials and civil society actors, scholars, leading Universities and research centres. For this reason, gLAWcal is also constantly to expand its network.

Following a Call for Papers (which can be found here), on December 16, 2015, gLAWcal in partnership with University of Macau, Faculty of Law (China) organized an International Conference on “Consumer Policy in China: New Trends and Challenges”. This conference is part of the research project entitled ‘Consumer Policy in China: Protecting the Citizens, Strengthening the Domestic Market and Building an Ecological Civilization’ (Research Project funded by the University of Macau, Project Reference MYRG2015-00219-FLL).
