Concurrences cultivates scholarship and discussion on antitrust issues through publications and events. Each publication and event is supervised by editorial boards and scientific or steering committees to ensure independence, objectivity, and academic excellence. Concurrences has become one of the few think tanks in Europe to have a significant influence on antitrust policies. Concurrences attracts government, business, and academic attention to a broad range of subjects relating to competition law, regulations, and industrial economics. This focus on the antitrust field allows Concurrences to combine legal expertise with political acumen.

Boards and Committees

To maintain its unique focus, Concurrences relies on highly distinguished editors, all leading experts in national or international antitrust law. Each publication has its own Scientific Committee and Editorial Board. Editors include leading voices in competition law such as: Douglas Ginsburg, Laurence Idot, Frederic Jenny, Bill Kovacic, Wouter Wils, Eleanor Fox, Richard Whish. Committee and Board members play an active role in editorial policy. See e-Competitions Bulletin Committees, and Concurrences Review Committees.


A network of 3,500 authors and contributors provides Concurrences with detailed analysis of regional, national, and international case law. They are all antitrust experts: enforcers, academics, private practice lawyers, or in-house counsel. The authors’ network covers a spectrum of 85 jurisdictions, making Concurrences publications a unique and truly international resource. See Authors.


Concurrences has a number of major partners:

 Academic partners: Antitrust research centers at leading universities provide the Review and the Bulletin with regular contributions. Academics from these centers are regular keynote speakers at Concurrences events.

 Law firms and Economic consultancies: International law firms, antitrust niche firms and economic consultancies write detailed case summaries for e-Competitions. Selected contributions that meet editorial standards may be republished. These firms and consultancies partner with Concurrences for public conferences or leverage their expertise to host their own internal events. See Partners..
