Prof. Xue Presented at UNCITRAL Colloquium on Identity Management and Trust Services

At its forty-eighth session (2015) the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) requested its Secretariat to convene a colloquium on legal issues related to identity management and trust services with a view to compiling information on the scope and methodology of future work in that area (see Official Records of the General Assembly, Seventieth Session, Supplement No. 17 (A/70/17), para. 358). In line with that request, UNCITRAL Electronic Commerce Working Group organized the Colloquium on ID Management and Trust Services on April 21 and 22, 2016 at the Vienna International Centre. The Program and conference materials are available on the UNCITRAL website.

Prof. Xue, as the second speaker of the first Session of the Colloquium, gave a comprehensive presentation on “Scoping Cross-Border e-ID Management and Facilitating International e-Trade”. Prof. Xue pointed out the key legal issues with respect to the eID management and the possible legal framework or solution to address these issues. The new theoretical analysis and framing provided by Prof. Xue were warmly haled as the creative and innovative research that opens up a new legal dimension by the legal professions at the conference. Prof. Xue specifically addressed the open “federal” approach for eID management and the important role of trust service and creatively adopted the three-tier analytical benchmarks for eID law and scoping, i.e. principal IDs, derivative IDs and alternative IDs.

The Colloquium is very informative and invited the representatives of almost all the existing eID management laws and practices, including Estonia, US Virginia, Russia, Peru and China.

Through the discussions at the Colloquium, the UNCITRAL will officially launch the new project on eID management and trust service in the auspices of the Electronic Commerce Working Group, which is expected to conclude its work on the drafting of the Model Law on Electronic Transferable Records.

2015 UNCITRAL ASIA PACIFIC DAY @ Beijing Normal University JCP

On December 1, 2015, BNU-UNCITRAL Joint Certificate Program on International E-Commerce Law (JCP) successfully organized the UNCITRAL Asia Pacific Day Lecture in the Law School Auditorium of BNU. The Co-Directors of JCP, Prof. Hong Xue, Director BNU IIPL, and Dr. Luca Castellani, UNCITRAL Legal Officer, gave the lectures respectively.

Prof. Xue, at the beginning, gave a briefing of the development of JCP (please refer to the JCP Chronicle at <>) and addressed the Program’s great potential on teaching, research and international collaboration. Prof. Xue also circulated the new updated flyer of the JCP to the audience.

Dr. Castellani joined remotely from Vienna and gave a lecture titled “The future of e-commerce law: the UNCITRAL perspective”. Although the same lecture has been presented several time at different occasions in Beijing, Dr. Castellani was always able to provide the updated and fresh knowledge and information and inspired the new thinking in this legal area.

Many BNU post-graduate students joined the Lecture and actively interacted with the Lecturers, despite Beijing’s terribly smoggy weather all through early December 2015. The students’ passion for international e-commerce law is inspiring all the faculties of JCP to work harder to achieve bigger success of the Program.
