commitments will often be the proportionate solution to competition problems in
merger as well as abuse of dominance cases. We will explore the use of
structural and behavioural remedies and commitments. What are adequate
solutions if a structural remedy is not possible, and how can we avoid price
caps or behavioural measures that are hard to monitor and enforce? The seminar
will encourage an exchange of experiences between the participants and aims to
enrich the agencies’ remedy toolboxes with the help of expert practitioners and
in practical exercises.
New challenges in the

In this seminar, we will look at the energy sector and will
investigate it under different angles. This will cover the
interaction between regulation and competition law in energy markets; the role of innovation in energy market
competition; issues of market definition; and merger control and abuse of
dominance cases. Experienced practitioners will present case studies and will
explain the main competition problems and recent developments.
