  • Title: Competition Economics Course: Abuse of Dominance - Barcelona GSE

Barcelona GSE Intensive Course on Competition Economics: Abuse of Dominance.. jump to:.. course overview.. key benefits.. schedule.. faculty.. fees.. accommodation.. Message from the directors.. The treatment of abusive (or monopolization) practices by dominant firms is certainly one of the most controversial areas in competition policy.. This is apparent in the very different approaches that have been adopted in the main competition jurisdictions.. In the US it is extremely rare that courts find in favor of plaintiffs in cases such as predation, exclusive dealing, rebates and margin squeeze even in circumstances where anticompetitive effects would have arguably deserved more attention.. At the other extreme, in the EU dominant firms have been repeatedly sanctioned by competition agencies and courts for such practices, at times disregarding potential efficiency considerations.. More recently however, EU policy in this area is moving towards a more economic effects-based approach.. read more.. Course overview.. will provide participants (whether lawyers or economists, working for firms or in agencies) with a thorough understanding of the most recent economic theories of monopolization, will help them apply these concepts in practice, and will review actual cases in the light of an effects-based approach.. The program s faculty includes some of the leading academic economists in the area of abuse of dominance, and practitioners with extensive experience of the application of economic techniques to competition cases in this area..
