ABSTRACT: The competition community comprises of a diverse assembly of experts—passionate about their job. Among them, consumer organizations, in-house counsels, attorneys, academics, judges, competition agencies, sector regulators, government departments, and international organizations.
The debate they engage in, directly influences competition policy, and enables the adjustment of existing enforcement tools to address ever more varied issues, such as the digital economy and platforms.
