About the conference:
This symposium on Competition Law at the Intersection of Equity and Efficiency, co-organized by theGlobal Competition Law Center at the College of Europe and the UCL Centre for Law, Economics and Society aims to discuss Eleanor Fox’s contribution to the field of competition policy. Leading competition law scholars from around the world will comment on Eleanor Fox’s scholarship, reflecting on her legacy, while engaging with the broader debate of the relation between “efficiency” and “equity” in competition law.

The symposium aims to provide critical insights into the work of one of the world’s most prominent competition law scholar of the past four decades by providing leading global competition law experts, Eleanor’s colleagues and friends, the opportunity to engage with the psyche of competition law and the balance, for some, or Faustian Pact for others, it has reached between “efficiency” and “equity”.
