Section Description

This course examines antitrust law in the global economy. It focuses on the laws and enforcement practices in the United States and the EU, highlighting important areas of divergence, and discussing the legal, economic and political reasons for those differences. While most extensive attention will be paid to the US and EU antitrust laws, a brief discussion of antitrust laws of selected other countries, including emerging economies and developing countries, will be included. The course will also consider the problems of regulating global markets through domestic antitrust laws and evaluate proposals to internationalize antitrust law and link it more closely with international trade law. Finally, the course will analyze some topical issues such as how antitrust regulation should respond to the increasing market power of digital platforms, the emergence of antitrust protectionism, as well as antitrust-privacy intersection.
