Research House for Sustainable Governance and Markets

House for Sustainable Governance and Markets

The FDEF House for Sustainable Governance and Markets (HSGM) is a virtual platform that combines the joint sustainability expertise of our three departments, four disciplines, 200 researchers and 18 nations active in the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance.

The HSGM bundles sustainability research with a special view to sustainable governance and markets – ranging from the institutional, legal and economic ordering over the impact analysis of a changing environment to social effects.

Sustainability, as understood by the researchers supporting the Hub, relates to the United Nation’s seventeen Sustainable Development Goals – the United Nation’s blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future. The UNSDGs address the global challenges, including those related to climate change, poverty, gender, inequality, exclusion, environmental degradation, migration, peace and justice.

FinTech & Digitalisation

The departments of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance deal with the latest legal and financial developments regarding FinTech and the digital economy.  As an integral part of the University of Luxembourg’s FinTech working group, the FDEF’s research focuses at the Department of Law on legal and regulatory matters: Banking and Financial Law, Private Law & Civil Law, Technology Law, Criminal Law and Legal Theory and Public Law & Tax Law, while the Department of Finance discusses FinTech from a finance perspective: Asset Management, Institutions, Financial Innovation and Sustainable Finance.
