Protecting consumers taking credit in the digital era: Can we do better?

 

This full-day conference, jointly organised by CEPS-ECRI and the European Commission, Directorate General for Justice and Consumers, aims at exchanging views on the functioning of the existing rules for consumer credit and discussing possible improvements. Among others, the conference will cover the role of consumer credit in the economy, the scope of application of existing rules, the effectiveness of information disclosure and the model of responsible lending in the digital era. These issues will be debated with senior practitioners, distinguished academics, high-level officials and influential representatives from consumer associations.
