The project proposal “The ABC of Online Disclosure Duties: Towards a More Uniform Assessment of the Transparency of Consumer Information in Europe” has been awarded to Dr Joasia Luzak.
Within the Open Research Area (ORA) funding scheme 2015 the funding was awarded, among others, to a project led by Joasia Luzak (CSECL) on “The ABC of Online Disclosure Duties: Towards a More Uniform Assessment of the Transparency of Consumer Information in Europe”. Total budget for this 3-year project is ca 465.000 Euro and will allow to conduct comparative and empirical legal research in Germany, the Netherlands, England and Poland. The research aims to develop European guidelines that national enforcement authorities (NEA) should apply to uniformly assess the transparency of disclosures. These guidelines will be drafted on the basis of insights gained from conducting: a) comparative legal research illustrating when a given disclosure is currently assessed as transparent by NEA; b) empirical legal research determining the desired and applied criteria for the transparency’s assessment.
