In his publications he has addressed various public policy issues relevant to the gaming sector such as Anti-Money Laundering and Online Gambling: Guidance on How to Implement Broad and Indistinct AML Notions in Regulatory Practice (2017, SSRN); Empirical Views on European Gambling Law and Addiction (2014, Springer); Gambling Law in The Handbook of EEA Law (2016, Springer).

Discussion & workshop

The perks and drawbacks of different forms of regulating the game

Staying on the front-foot of regulatory innovation means we should regularly look beyond established and prevalent practices. This discussion and workshop will call on the expertise and experience of our international attendees through an active exchange and debate of views and ideas. Together, we’ll explore the problem, ‘how to regulate the game’, from new angles. 

With Birgitte Sand, Director, Danish Gambling Authority.
