Recent European judicial decisions and changes in the restructuring of the administrative apparatus in China and other countries have provided an opportune moment to reconsider the proper role of due process principles in competition law enforcement. This conference will release a new international study comparing transparency and fairness in competition law enforcement in Europe, China, and the U.S. It will also feature a keynote address by European Court of Justice Advocate Generale and former Giovanni Pitruzzella and panels of distinguished current and former jurists and competition policymakers to explore key issues such as the disclosure of evidence to the parties, separation of investigatory and adjudicative personnel, and judicial review.
The growing importance of big data, artificial intelligence, and algorithms has stimulated an intense debate about their implications for competition law. This conference, which will also feature a keynote address by former U.S. Federal Trade Commission Chair Maureen Ohlhausen, will explore the technical and economic foundations of big data and examine the proper application of concepts such as algorithmic collusion, abuse of dominance, and merger analysis.
