Does DLT promote democratic corporate relations, or does it favor autocracy?

Date: 14 of june

Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Place: H 303

The meeting will discuss how Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) could challenge the traditional corporate power structure.

The Commercial Law Department and the Research Group on Colombian Commercial and Comparative Law invite the academic community to the Conference Cycle Challenges and Perspectives of Commercial Law.

Catherine Arias Barrera, Commercial Law Department professor-researcher, will offer the conference. She will present her views on the consistent questioning of how Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) could challenge traditional corporate power structure while helping to address issues relating to administrators’ responsibility, Boards of Directors structuring, and shareholders’ rights.  The DLT offers a transparent records management system with high-level security, as each unit has copies of records on the computers of all the participants in a system. Thus, any differences in information held by individuals and the system are reconciled and simultaneously corrected through the system processor units.
