Dr Gomtsian awarded the Brenno Galli prize for the most promising young scholar’s paper

Dr Suren Gomtsian presented at the annual conference of the Italian Society of Law and Economics, held at the University of Turin, on December 17 2016.

The paper, which uses FIFA as a case study to show how private orderings may succeed in governing the behavior of the involved actors by keeping them away from regular state courts, received Swiss National Bank’s 2016 Brenno Galli award.

The prize aims to encourage outstanding young scholars to develop their research in the field of law and economics and is awarded annually to the most promising young scholar’s paper presented at the conference.

The award committee recognized the paper’s contribution to the debate on private vs. public orderings and noted its interest to a wide audience.

The paper is titled Between the Green Pitch and the Red Tape: The Private Legal Order of FIFA.
