The ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy at UNCITRAL-UNIDROIT Workshop


UNCITRAL and UNIDROIT invited ELI President and ALI-ELI Co-Reporter Christiane Wendehorst as an expert to a two-day workshop on Artificial Intelligence, Data Transactions and Digital Assets and Other DLT-Related Issues on 10 and 11 March 2020 at UNCITRAL in Vienna.

The approach of the ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy – Data Rights and Transactions on leapfrogging and other downstream obligations, which already found broad recognition at the 59th session of Working Group IV on 25 to 29 November 2019, were lively discussed in the data transactions session.

The 'ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy' are a transnational project conducted jointly by the American Law Institute and ELI. The project is generously funded by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation. The Reporters of the Principles, Christiane Wendehorst (on the ELI side) and Neil Cohen (on the ALI side), are currently working on Preliminary Draft 4.
