2021 Workshop Antitrust Frontiers Global Forum Competition Policy for the Global Economy (with video clips)

2021 Workshop

Antitrust Frontiers Global Forum

Competition Policy for the Global Economy

June 22, 2021

In the coming decade, we will witness a surge of new laws and new enforcement policies seeking to advance competition in the digital era, protect consumers and workers, and spur economic growth. The anticipated reforms will require lawmakers and enforcement agencies to revisit analytical methods, reconsider the relationship between competition laws and regulation, and develop new approaches to global enforcement policies.
Our 2021 Workshop convenes eight influential antitrust thinkers to discuss the legal, economic, and institutional challenges that will shape the development of competition laws in the coming years.
