Radboud Economic Law Conference & Blog

Radboud Economic Law Conference & Blog

Economic law is a broad legal area. Its complexity stems from the multitude of sub-domains embedded in it, as well as from the interesting interplay between them. At EU level in particular, the free movement provisions, the competition law rules, the intellectual property regime, the public procurement law, etc. play an important role in shaping the Internal Market. Economic law is a dynamic domain, entailing constantly developing policies and frameworks, multi-layered regulatory and law enforcement regimes, actors active in various (domestic and transnational) jurisdictional levels, and puzzling case-law of the domestic and EU judiciary.

In order to bring more clarity to the challenges that the economic law area regularly puts forward in both the domestic and transnational contexts, we are proposing two handy tools: the yearly Radboud Economic Law International Conference and the Radboud Economic Law Blog. First, the conference brings together once per year academics and practitioners, who debate on various topics of economic law, which are high on the agenda in the legal circles. Each conference concludes with the publication of an edited volume, containing the contributions presented during the conference proceedings. Second, the blog offers a forum where topics of actuality are commented on. Its main aims are to shed light on the latest developments in the economic law field, to bring to the forefront forward-looking analyses of the existing regulatory and enforcement challenges, and to stir debate on the intricacies of the economic law realm.
