4th ChillinCompetition Conference (Denis Waelbroeck “What is a restriction of competition” & Andriani Kalintiri “The Burden of Proof”)

with 3 comments

We continue the serious of posts devoted to the TED@Chillin’Competition talls delivered at the 4th Chillin’Competition conference with the interventions of two of the people have had a greater influence on Pablo’s career (which should be a positive thing to say, I guess?) 😉


-The video of Denis Waelbroecks clarifying intervention on the notion of restriction of competition is available here. Denis’s to-the-point presentation has the virtue of reminding us of cases that should never be forgotten, but that too often are.

The slides he used are available here: denis waelbroeck- what is a restriction



-The video of Andriani Kalintiri ‘s quite unique presentation on “The Burden of Proof” is available here. While it is not evident to many people, the interpretation and application of this concept might well be single most important issue in competition law nowadays. And very few people understand it and explain it as neatly as Andriani. If this interests you, she has a book on the pipeline .

The slides she used are available here: andriani kalintiri-the burden of proof


[Note: this is the fifth post in a series featuring videos of the individual interventions that took place at the Chillin’Competition conference on 30 November 2018. For more videos, click here]
