Professor Enrico Al Mureden to address UN Global Forum on Road Traffic Safety in Geneva

Renowned legal scholar Professor Enrico Al Mureden from the University of Bologna’s Department of Legal Sciences is set to take stage as a keynote speaker at the prestigious Global Forum for Road Traffic Safety, 88th Session, to be held at the Palais des Nations in Geneva from March 18th to 22nd, 2024.

Professor Al Mureden’s keynote address during the plenary session, entitled “Protecting vulnerable road users in the age of assisted and automated driving between current rules and new perspectives“, will focus on the creation of a regulatory framework to govern emerging automotive technologies, ensuring that their development is seamlessly aligned with road safety principles and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. His presentation will address the transition from a traditional driver-centric civil liability system to a new paradigm that seeks to fully protect victims, even in accidents involving products that meet safety standards.

Since the foundation of MUNER – Motor Vehicle University of Emilia-Romagna, Professor Al Mureden has been teaching the course “Product Safety, Product Liability and Automotive”. His commitment to the promotion of knowledge in the field of automotive law extends to the establishment of seminar cycles, including “Automotive Law”, within the Master in Legal Studies program at the Faculty of Law of the University of Bologna.

Professor Al Mureden’s participation as a distinguished speaker at the UN Global Forum underscores his significant contributions to the field and highlights the deep connection between his academic contributions and MUNER’s innovative educational initiatives.
