Should social networks offering free services such as Facebook be subject to intervention by competition authorities? Can Member States’ measures combatting climate change be tolerated under EU state aid rules? Questions like these will be discussed during the track European Competition Law and Regulation part of the Master's International and European Law.
Global challenges such as fast technological changes, climate change and societal transformation disrupt existing market structures and business models. They challenge our current understanding of how markets work. As businesses adjust their practices to the changing market, the boundaries of the law and existing models of regulation are greatly influenced. Can private sustainability initiatives of firms escape competition law control? How should EU law regulate the sharing and platform economy, for example Airbnb or Uber? During this track you will learn to analyze and reflect on these issues.
