June 18-19, 2014(2014年6月18-19日)

 

As consumer markets develop and grow in China, consumer protection has become one of the major regulatory challenges of the time. Can consumers expect the products and services they buy, and the investments they make, to be trustworthy and safe? What can the law do to safeguard the experience of consumers? How would markets react to legal intervention? Utilizing the tools of Law and Economics, experts from Chinese Universities and from the University of Chicago offer innovative ideas for the design of consumer protection law. The conference is a collaborative effort of Zhejiang University Center for Law and Economics and the University of Chicago. It will be published in a special issue of the journal Law and Social Science.

随着中国消费市场的成长与发展,消费者保护问题已成为这一时代监管制度中最具挑战性的问题。消费者是否能够确保他们购买并为之进行投资的产品和服务符合预期并足够安全?法律如何保护消费者?对于政府干预,市场将如何回应?来自中国和芝加哥大学法学院的学者们将运用法律经济学的工具为消费者保护的法律制度建构贡献新的观点和视角。此次会议是浙江大学法律经济研究中心与芝加哥大学合作的成果。会议论文将刊载于《法律和社会科学》即将出版的特辑中。
