The Erasmus Center for Economic and Financial Governance (ECEFG) calls for papers for the first edition of its annual Competition Policy workshop. The events of ECEFG stand out because they bring together academics and practitioners from economics, law and other disciplines on topics related to economic and financial governance.

This year the focus of our workshop is on Big Tech in Competition Policy.  In the past decade there has been an increasing concern that traditional competition policy and regulation practices are ill equipped to tackle new (digital) platform markets. Partly because of the speed of developments in these markets, partly because the price in these markets is often non-monetary (data rather than money), and partly because there is call for (anti-trust) authorities to remedy the entrenched positions that current big tech companies enjoy. Very recently, these concerns have resulted in the Digital Markets Act of the EU.

Our workshop aims to give a podium to research on the frontier of these and related fields, as well as research providing an overview of the current situation and literature. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Platform markets and competition policy or regulation
  • Privacy and competition policy or regulation
  • The Digital Markets Act and its consequences.

We invite scholars from any discipline to submit an extended abstract or full paper in pdf format, by email to ecefg@ese.eur.nl, not later than Friday June 24th. Decisions on acceptance will be communicated not later than Friday July 9th.

Participation in the workshop is free. Lunch is included. There is a workshop dinner for presenters. Non-presenters can also register to join the workshop dinner for a small fee (20 Euro).

For any questions, please send an email to ecefg@ese.eur.nl.

Yours sincerely,
