will give a presentation on:
“Will the new Digital Markets Act create competition where antitrust failed?”
on December 7th 2023 from 5pm till 6.15pm at auditoire Montesquieu (MONT 10) Map here
The talk will describe what the Digital Markets Act is designed to fix and the methods the law uses to achieve its goals of fairness and contestability. The contrast with antitrust enforcement shows why these competition problems may be easier to address with a regulatory tool. However, it is uncertain whether the DMA will be able to open up digital markets successfully.
« This conference is organized in connection with the interdisciplinary research project PROSEco (Platform Regulation and Operations in the Sharing Economy). “
