Free conference announcement: "The Transparent Trap: Disclosing Information to Consumers", 4-5 July 2019, University of Amsterdam

Location: Amsterdam, Roeterseilandcampus

The Centre for the Study of European Contract Law at the University of Amsterdam, SRH Hochschule Berlin and University of Exeter are organising together an international, interdisciplinary conference "The Transparent Trap: Disclosing Information to Consumers" on 4-5 July 2019 in Amsterdam.

The aim of the conference is to go beyond the discussion of the principle of transparency as a legal instrument often used by European and national legislators to guarantee consumer protection. Whilst the first conference sessions will focus on the transparency requirements and limitations of disclosures to consumers, following sessions will examine practical possibilities of providing transparent and simplified (pre-)contractual disclosures, esp. in the online environment.

The detailed conference programme will be announced in due time. Speakers at the conference are scholars of: public and private law, communication science, linguistics, contract innovation. This event facilitates, therefore, an interdisciplinary debate on how to further improve disclosures.

Anyone interested in the topic (from whichever angle/discipline, academia/public or private sector) should endeavour to participate in the conference in July in Amsterdam!

The conference attendance is *free of charge *(incl. lunch on Friday), but *registration is necessary* (and due to the limit of space, please register as soon as possible) *at the email address of Claire Bradley <**(c.bradley3 /at/ <mailto:(c.bradley3 /at/>>*
