issue cover

As Joint General Editor (with Gianni De Stefano) of the Journal of European Competition Law & Practice, I am particularly proud to present this month’s number, which is devoted to the regulation of digital markets (The Digital Markets Act and beyond). The Special Issue can be accessed here.

The Issue includes a contribution by Filomena Chirico, a Member of Thierry Breton’s Cabinet and someone who has been following very closely the legislative development since the early days (on top of being an academically-minded official who worked at Tilburg and the College of Europe prior to joining the European Commission). Her piece is entitled Digital Markets Act: A Regulatory Perspective.

The rest of the Special Issue is made up of a number of submissions we received and which we thought provide high quality, valuable and diverse perspectives on the regulation of digital markets. They are the following:

Sector Regulation of Digital Platforms in Europe: Uno, Nessuno e Centomila, by Marco Botta (EUI and Max Planck Munich).

Digital Platforms and the New 19a Tool in the German Competition Act, by Jens-Uwe Franck and Martin Peitz (Mannheim).

The Proposed Digital Markets Act (DMA): A Legal and Policy Review, by Nicolas Petit (EUI and College of Europe).

The European Digital Markets Act: A Revolution Grounded on Traditions, by Pierre Larouche (Montreal) and Alexandre de Streel (Namur and College of Europe).

Why the Proposed DMA Might Be Illegal under Article 114 TFEU, and How to Fix It, by Alfonso and Nieves Bayón Fernández (Garrigues). Their original submission, discussed on the blog, may be accessed here.

The Draft Digital Markets Act: A Legal and Institutional Analysis, by yours truly. My original submission has been on ssrn for a while and can be downloaded here.

Enjoy the Special Issue! And do not hesitate to contact me if you think a piece of yours could fit in the journal.
