CONFERENCE : COMPETITION POLICY - INTERNATIONAL TRADE - DIGITAL ECONOMY - DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION - TERRITORIALITY - ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

Introductory remarks (New Frontiers of Antitrust, Paris, 13 June 2016)

A great diversity of panel members composed the Seventh edition of the "New Frontiers of Antitrust" Conference held in Paris on June 13th, 2016. The Conference opened with hopes.

Finally, the fourth panel expressed its concerns as regards the growing difficulties encountered to find the right balance between law and economic theory in the enforcement of European competition law and particularly of article 102 TFEU.
