Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

A publication, an information and an explanation

leave a comment »

My paper on competition authorities’ enforcement discretion has just been published in Concurrences. Amongst the various papers I published to date, I am really proud of this one. The reason?  It embodies all the things which make research, and academic life, a thrilling job:

  1. It forced me to conduct research on a largely unchartered topic, and to propose an original – at least I believe – conceptual framework;
  2. I benefited from strong empirical input received from more than a dozen national reporters;
  3. The LIDC annual congress – for which I prepared the paper – was a great moment in a wonderful town. I met loads of fascinating people during the congress;
  4. We eventually managed, on the basis of this paper, to draft public policy proposals, which were eventually sent to competition authorities.

As to the information: the next LIDC congress will take place in Bordeaux (France), from 30 September to 3 October. To all those interested in learning how competition law and a Lafite Rotschild combine, I recommend the conference. A specific website has been created to advertise the conference.

Finally as the explanation: the past days have been increasingly busy. This explains the belated posting activity on the blog.
