Abuse of dominance (or monopolization) is certainly the most debated area in competition policy. The recent cases involving digital platforms, which are being investigated in many jurisdictions around the world (including middle-income and developing countries), have only increased the interest of scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers. 

 

This 3-day course will provide you (whether a lawyer or an economist) with a thorough understanding of the most recent economic theories of monopolization, and learn how to apply these concepts in practice. You will also get acquainted with the most important abuse of dominance cases, identify their key features, and understand how to assess them.

Acquire a thorough understanding of the most recent economic theories of monopolization, review actual cases and apply the concepts in practice

During this course, you will:

  • review established and recent economic theories of abuse through a largely non-formal exposition also accessible to non-economists.

  • identify the core elements of an effects-based approach for the assessment of unilateral conduct

  • acquire the ability to critically evaluate economic analysis and submissions in abuse of dominance matters

  • learn to assess the regulatory risk of a large firm's conduct

This intensive course is taught by expert faculty who have authored some of the most important research contributions in this area, and have extensive experience in the application of economic techniques to competition cases of abuse of dominance (or monopolization) practices, in jurisdictions all over the world, including middle-income and developing countries.
