Project description:
Denmark participates, alongside with other member states, in the preparation phase on legislative and non-legislative instruments from UNCITRAL. However, Denmark is reluctant to adopt and implement the very same legislative and non-legislative instruments. Accordingly, the outset of this PhD thesis is to investigate the advantages and disadvantages in regard to implementation of the latest model law adopted by UNCITRAL in 2017 concerning electronic transferable records.
