Competition Law

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

The course provides an introduction to European competition law. By the
end of the course, students will be able to analyze and discuss European
competition law on a highly advanced level.

Inhoud vak

The course deals with all central aspects of EU competition law:
agreements, the abuse of a dominant position, and merger control.
Additionally, we will take a close look at the US antitrust debate at
various points. In particular, the course focuses on the growing
concerns regarding the anti-competitive practices of the "Big Tech"
companies. In this context we will also address the economic and
political dimension of competition law: can markets still work
efficiently and fairly in the presence of significant economic
concentration? Does the growing concentration of economic power unduly
undermine individual freedoms and democratic decision-making? And which
instruments does competition law provide to keep these threats in check?


The course includes lectures, discussions and a moot court exercise.


Final assignment (take-home exam) and assignments related to the moot
court exercise.


To be announced on Canvas
