December 17, 2020

The chapter of Professor Tibor Tajti (CEU Legal Studies) titled ‘’Are Some Classes of Consumer-Investors of Collapsed Pyramid and Ponzi Schemes Vulnerable? A Multi-Jurisdictional Perspective” has been published by the international publisher Routledge (https://www.routledge.com/Discrimination-Vulnerable-Consumers-and-Financial-Inclusion-Fair-Access/Stanescu-Gikay/p/book/9780367511111) in December 2020. The paper represents another mosaic in his research project devoted to the comparative analysis of pyramid and Ponzi schemes as forms of financial fraud.

The book is uniquely linked to CEU Legal Studies Department and its International Business Law Program by two important reasons ways.

On the one hand, the book was edited by two alumni of our department, Cătălin-Gabriel Stănescu (faculty of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark) and Asress Adimi Gikay (Lecturer at Brunel University, London, United Kingdom).

On the other hand, the volume contains also the contribution of Cătălin devoted to the genuinely novel topic of ‘Digital Debt Collection. Opportunities, Abuses and Concerns,’ as well as the thought-provoking paper of another successful alumnus of our department, Chima Williams Iheme (faculty of Jindal Global Law School, India), who wrote on ‘Vulnerability, Financial Inclusion, and the Heightened Relevance of Education in a Credit Crisis.’

The book grew out of the international conference ‘Fair and non-discriminatory access to financial services’ held at Copenhagen University in September 2019 (https://jura.ku.dk/english/cme/calender/2019/access-to-financial-services/) and organized by Cătălin.
