Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Materials from the Ithaca Competition Summit

with 2 comments


Not even two months have passed, but it already feels like a different (let’s call it golden) age.

On 23 and 24 August, around 90 pioneers, led by Peter Alexiadis, gathered in Vathy for the 1st Ithaca Competition Summit. I have wonderful memories of those days (and I think I speak on behalf of the rest of the attendees). The place is really stunning – I am not saying this to be nice to Peter, who, I think, would rather not have the word spread – and the academic side of things was, as expected, of the highest level.

Here are some of the materials used in the conference – remember they will come out in a special issue of the Journal of European Competition Law & Practice.

Session 1: Enforcement & Review in Competition Matters

Session 2: Behavioural Practices – Evolving Standards

Session 3: Merger Policy – Current and Emerging Trends

Session 4: Regulatory Policy Meets Antitrust Paradigms

  1. Excellent – many thanks as ever – one small point: Prof Nazzini refers to Sir Peter Smith as being the judge in Microsoft v. Sony case. it was in fact Sir Marcus Smith. The former was infamous for inter alios his behaviour in the air cargo litigation, which led to his refusal and eventual retirement from the Bench. The latter is a well-respected judge who has most recently handed down an important judgment in BritNed v. ABB.
