Carolin Kaiser, LL.M.

Carolin Kaiser is currently finalizing her Ph.D research at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen about privacy and identity issues in financial transactions, in which virtual currencies also play a big role. The focus of this research lies on the question, whether human rights, especially the rights to privacy and data protection, are properly balanced and reflected in the currently applicable legal framework governing financial transactions. Virtual currencies are an especially interesting case in this regard, as they create a radically new category of financial services, for which legal terms to a large extent do not yet exist.
Before beginning her Ph.D research, Carolin has had the good fortune to be in a position to pursue her studies at six European universities, and finally specialized in communication and information technology law, with degrees from the universities of Hannover and Oslo, and European law, with degrees from the universities of Groningen and Bremen.
