are organizing international conference

POSSIBILITIES AND LIMITS OF COMPETITION LAW:

GLOBAL TRENDS, REGIONAL PERSPECTIVE

Osijek, Croatia

3. – 5. 10. 2024.

With the widespread adoption of competition laws around the globe, new challenges arise when competition law is transplanted in countries with varying degrees of economic development. Despite the fact that significant efforts have been made on EU level and globally to ensure that jurisdictions adopt common principles and tools for the analysis of anti-competitive conduct and mergers, still, competition law is not a one-size-fits-all set of rules and can vary significantly across different regions around the world. In that sense, avoiding inconsistent competition law enforcement and ensuring harmonized decision making approach is a one of key challenges and a key goal for current and future competition law enforcement.

In this sense, the purpose of this Conference is to explore new legislative initiatives, harmonization efforts and main challenges to effective competition law enforcement in South and East European Countries (and broader).

Furthermore, looking ahead, the purpose of this Conference is also to address how evolving global trends, such as digital technologies, sustainable development goals and other contemporary issues shape the future of competition in different regions.

Conference intends to gather legal researchers, policy makers, professionals, practitioners and other stakeholders from EU, SEE Countries and around the world to explore the new trends and developments in competition law from global and regional perspective.
