Event Type

Global Competition Law Center (GCLC) of the College of Europe have organised this special project in the form of a one day conference taking place on 21 June in Brussels aimed at reflecting on the evolution of EU competition policy over the past 50+ years.

The conference aims to offer an overview of the journey taken by key areas of EU competition policy over the past decades, and to then focus on three topics of particular relevance to today’s application of EU competition law, namely the interactions between competition law and intellectual property, the sharing of public enforcement between the EU and national levels, and the development of private enforcement and associated challenges. The event will conclude with a lecture by Mario Siragusa, followed by a Q&A session revolving around his practice and experience.

Ronit Kreisberger will be on the panel covering the topic “The Rise of Private Competition Law Enforcement: benefits, costs and future prospects” with a presentation on the achievements and challenges of private enforcement in the United Kingdom.
