Regulatory Challenges of Online Gambling

Event Description

Copenhagen Business School


Online gambling is a rapidly growing industry, but it is not just another form of interactive entertainment. Like land-based gambling, online gambling bears the risk of addiction and problem gambling, and can be misused for money laundering and other financial crimes. As with other forms of illegal or harmful online activities, the regulation of online gambling bears special challenges. Which regulatory tools are effective to combat illegal online gambling? How can users be made aware of risks of online gambling? How can we protect minors and persons suffering from gambling addiction from targeted online gambling advertising?

This seminar brings together academics and practitioners from different backgrounds, including from law, marketing, and business studies to better understand regulatory challenges and to develop interdisciplinary research strategies.
