The course deals with all central aspects of EU competition law: horizontal agreements, the abuse of a dominant position, and merger control. Additionally, we will take a close look at the US antitrust debate at various points. In particular, the course focuses on the growing concerns regarding the anti-competitive practices of the "Big Tech" companies. In this context we will also address the economic and political dimension of competition law: can markets still work efficiently and fairly in the presence of significant economic concentration? Does the growing concentration of economic power unduly undermine individual freedoms and democratic decision-making? And which instruments does competition law provide to keep these threats in check?

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
