The Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) will be running a workshop on Friday 14th September 2017 at the University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The subject of the workshop will be the broad theme of ‘Constitutional Challenges in Europe – the impact and role of competition law’.

We invite abstract paper proposals from researchers, scholars, practitioners and policy-makers in relation to any issue within this broad theme.  We welcome theoretical, economics-driven, practice-based or policy focused papers, and we are interested in receiving abstracts for papers which may be focused on perspectives or experience at national, regional (eg EU), or international levels, or a combination.

Contributions are invited particularly in the field of the following matters:

  • Rule of law challenges in Europe and its impact on competition law (enforcement)
  • The impact of Brexit on the enforcement of EU competition law
  • The role of EU competition law in reinforcing the EU’s political constitution
  • Rule of law challenges and the political accountability of NCAs
  • The role of the EU and national parliaments in shaping (EU) competition policies
  • The external competition law of the EU
  • How do emerging non-competition interests defy the analytical framework of (EU) competition law

The conference will consist of a mix of invited speakers and contributions chosen following this call for papers.

Any person interested in being considered on the basis of the call for papers at the conference is asked to contact Professor Barry Rodger at barry.j.rodger@strath.ac.uk.

An abstract is required of approximately 500-1000 words, to be submitted by no later than 26 May 2017, and decisions on successful submissions will be taken by 9 June 2017. Submission of presentation/draft paper is also required a week prior to the workshop.

Papers presented at the conference can be submitted to the Competition Law Review editorial board with a view to being published in the Review. Note that the Review is a fully refereed scholarly law journal: submission does not guarantee publication.
