(VIIIth AIDA Europe Conference, Lisbon, Portugal, 3-4/10/2019) Call For Papers:

Thematic: “Insurance Distribution Directive – Promises and Reality”

The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee, comprising of Prof. Dr. Pierpaolo Marano and Dr. Kyriaki Noussia, invites the submission of academic papers for the VIIIth AIDA Europe Conferenceto be held in Lisbon, Portugal on 3-4/10/2019.

This conference will bring legal scholars and practitioners together, so as to explore and discuss the legal and regulatory issues emerging from the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD), hence the topic of the call. Invited speakers will present papers which will provide insights into the legal developments affecting both (re)insurance communities and society in Europe. The goal is to provide information on recent developments in the implementation of the Insurance Distribution Directive, and, in doing so, to also provide a forum for debating and developing the law and policy in this newly emerging legal field.

SELECTED PAPERS from the area of the Insurance Distribution Directive will be published in a book edited by Prof. Pierpaolo Marano, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy and Dr. Kyriaki Noussia, University of Exeter, UK. The book will be included in the AIDA Europe Research Series on Insurance Law and Regulation and will be published from Springer. The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee invites all academics and practitioners to submit their abstracts or prospective papers for potential selection for the book.


Scientific Committee invites students and young academics / practitioners who are no more than 35 years old, to submit their abstracts of prospective papers for potential selection for the book and the award. Three papers from any area of the IDD will be selected for award and presentation and their authors will be waived the costs of conference fees and will be awarded the costs of economy class flights plus those of 2 nights of accommodation.


We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers. We invite legal academics (including Ph.D. students) and legal practitioners to submit their manuscripts on a topic that explores any aspect of the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD).

The intersection of the Insurance Distribution Directive with other EU Directives/Regulation, International Principles and standards, or other subjects and areas of law (e.g. risk management, actuarial, economics, accounting, sociology, real estate, criminal law, etc.) is also welcome.

Manuscripts comparing the Insurance Distribution Directive with the law of Third Countries, especially of those Countries that are deemed equivalent under the Solvency II Directive, are welcomed as well.

Manuscripts focused on national laws implementing the Insurance Distribution Directive are also invited, in case that they deal with issues that are relevant for the European Union law or the Single Market.
