KAFP 3515 - Regulation & Digital Economy

Type d'enseignement : Lecture alone

Semester : Spring 2017-2018

Number of hours : 24

Language of tuition : English

Pre-requisite

Students must master basics in micro-economics (theory of competition) and law (hierarchy of norms and institutionnal environment in Europe and US). They must also be at ease with the digital environment and get basics with its history.

Course Description

As “software is eating the world”, Nations wants their rules and values to also apply to the digital economy. But classical regulatory approaches are strongly challenged, because of fast-changing innovation and worldwide footprint of internet players. Conversely, digital tools can promote self-organization and reduce the need for regulations. The course explores the new forms and fields of public interventions in the digital economy, focusing on economic-based regulatory approaches (tax and privacy issues not treated here).

Teachers

SORIANO, Sebastien (.)

Pedagogical format

We will have a significant case study time at each session. Students, gathered in group works, will have to publish a blogpost on a topic of their choice related to news or to the current political situation once in the semester. I forecast about 4 guest teachers within the semester.

Course validation

We will have two 1 hour exams, under the form of Q&A at session 6 and 12. First exam's grade will count as 30% of total, and the second one 50%. Students, gathered in group works, will have to publish a blogpost on a topic of their choice related to news or to the current political situation once in the semester, which will count as 20%.
