Private Antitrust Enforcement: taking stock and looking ahead

IE University/ IE Law School, Madrid (Spain)

In recent years, antitrust institutions and rules have undergone significant changes to adapt to the reality of the markets and to the new values and social objectives pursued. At the enforcement level, the focus has been on the reform and expansion of administrative/public enforcement tools in the digital environment, while in many cases not much attention has been paid to private/judicial enforcement. Nevertheless, the EU is experiencing a growth in antitrust litigation because of several follow-on actions after decisions by the European Commission and National Competition Authorities, in the heat of the changes introduced by the 2014 Directive on damages actions. It is pertinent to look at the past to reflect on the paths taken and the experiences in different jurisdictions, and the future of private claims and the eventual changes needed to improve the effectiveness of the antitrust rules.

Against this background, the Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) 42nd workshop invites contributions (abstract paper proposals from researchers, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers) in relation to any issue within this wide subject. 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 (e.g., EU), or international levels, or a combination. In addition, we would like the seminar to combine the sharing of research findings obtained by researchers in the early stages of their careers with those of more senior researchers.
The workshop is organized under the direction of Prof. Francisco Marcos (IE University/IE Law School) and Barry J. Rodger (Strathclyde University, Glasgow). It will be hosted in the Madrid Campus by IE University, IE Law School. We are planning a live, in-person event only. The workshop is sponsored by CCS Abogados.

The Workshop 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 workshop is asked to contact Prof Francisco Marcos <Francisco.marcos@ie.edu> and Prof. Barry Rodger <barry.j.rodger@strath.ac.uk>

An abstract is required of approximately 500-1,000 words, to be submitted by no later than 28th June 2024, and decisions on successful submissions will be taken by Friday 12th July 2024.
