Dr Hemant Garg, a city-based lawyer, arbitrator and an avid researcher, was felicitated by Oxford University, UK for his academic excellence. He was invited there to present a research paper on ‘Crypto currencies, their socio-legal and financial impacts on global economy’ at the recently concluded AICMSE 2018 conference.
Dr Garg will present his work on ‘Cooperatives and Big Data’ at the International Cooperative Alliance Research Conference to be held on 4-8 July, 2018 in Netherlands.
Dr Garg, a student of LLM at the University Institute of Legal Studies, Panjab University, Chandigarh, has been an alumnus of Edinburgh University, United Kingdome and Harvard University, USA where he studied business administration. He has earlier presented his research work on ‘Digital governance’ at Cambridge University.
Dr Garg, in his paper, said, “While the crypto currency such as Bitcoin is gaining traction as a medium of exchange, it still lags behind in terms of being a store of value due to its high volatility. Though the Reserve Bank of India has termed the trade and exchange of Bitcoin as illegal since no regulatory framework and legislation exists till now in India. But at global socio-economic level Bitcoin is a fast growing reality if not an opportunity.”
With 27 international and 31 national research papers published under his name, Dr Garg has been invited to present his research work and share his vision of Digitalization of Cooperatives and governance structures and processes at various international forums.
