Law and Economic Policy International Workshop : Antitrust for platform and network markets
This workshop will address the issue of competition policy for platform and network markets. Invited practitioners and academics will debate during a panel discussion, a keynote address and two sessions (one dedicated to theory, another to empirics) to provide insight into the economic analysis and competition law implications of such markets. Questions such as the following will be tackled: - Can the usual tools for traditional/one-sided market definition be employed? Is there need to use different tools, or adapt existing ones? - In what respect is a two-sided or network market analysis important for the competitive assessment? - How is market power to be correctly assessed on such markets? - Should competition policy be different for such markets? - What was the impact of two-sidedness or network effects for recent decisions of the Commission/National competition authorities?
