On 10 December 2021, UNIDROIT together with the University of Turin and the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO) co-organised a webinar on “UNIDROIT’s Projects and Technology”.
The event was introduced by Professor Cristina Poncibò (University of Turin). The panel was composed of UNIDROIT Deputy Secretary-General Professor Anna Veneziano, Roy Goode Scholar Professor Teresa Rodriguez de las Heras Ballel, and UNIDROIT Legal Officer Philine Wehling. Professor Poncibò and Professor Gustavo Prieto (Ghent University) participated as discussants.
The speakers presented the Institute’s work related to technology in general, as well as two ongoing projects that have a particular focus on technology: the project on Best Practices for Effective Enforcement and the joint UNCITRAL/UNIDROIT project on developing a Model Law on Warehouse Receipts. The presentations were followed by a lively Q&A session with the postgraduate students of the LLM Programme on International Trade Law at the ITC-ILO.
The webinar was part of the Master of Laws in International Trade Law programme, which is co-organised by the ITC-ILO, the University of Turin and the University Institute of European Studies in collaboration with the Turin School of Development. UNIDROIT formally became a partner organisation in the programme in 2019.
