Digital Technologies, Public Policy & Competition Law

It is our pleasure to announce that on 1 and 2 June 2023, the conference ‘Digital Technologies, Public Policy, and Competition Law’ takes place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Organized in the framework of the Law Sector Plan Rebalancing Public and Private Interests (Erasmus University Rotterdam) and the Law Sector Plan Digital Legal Studies (Tilburg University), and in collaboration with the Erasmus Center for Economic and Financial Governance (ECEFG), the conference will explore if and how competition law should adapt to technological developments and societal disruptions posed by the growing power of digital technologies while balancing public and private interests accordingly. Some of the issues we will discuss are, for instance, whether the enforcement of competition law against (big) tech companies can and should integrate public policy considerations beyond efficiency, like fundamental rights or sustainability concerns, and whether consumer welfare is an obsolete concept for dealing with the challenges of digital markets and other problems like climate change, inequality, and threats to democratic processes.

The draft program is available for download.

The conference will take place in an in-person format. To register, please fill in the form below.
