Senior Legal Counsel

Dr. Konstantina Bania is a Senior Legal Counsel at the European Broadcasting Union where she leads the competition law & policy and platform regulation workstreams. She further advises on telecoms regulation, PSM funding, and media rights acquisition. In 2017, the Academic Society for Competition Law awarded Konstantina the ‘Best Paper Prize’ for her piece entitled ‘The Role of Consumer Data in the Enforcement of EU Competition Law’. She received her PhD from the European University Institute. Her dissertation developed a framework whereby competition enforcement takes account of media pluralism without deviating from an economics-based approach to competition analysis. In 2016, she won the Concurrences Thesis award, an annual Europe-wide competition that is aimed at selecting the most innovative PhD dissertation in the field of law and economics. Konstantina has received research grants, prizes and fellowships from numerous institutions, including the Fulbright Commission, New York University, Fundação Getulio Vargas, the European University Institute, the Competition Law Scholars Forum, the Greek Scholarships Foundation, and the Institute for European Studies. She is a qualified lawyer (called to the Bar since 2008) and has advised IT qualifications providers, cloud service providers, and advertising agencies on a wide range of competition and regulatory matters. She has completed a blue book traineeship at DG Competition (State aids, media & telecommunications).
