The event, which was dedicated to the ‘Future of Competition Enforcement’ marked the first occasion that The Dickson Poon School of Law and the Brussels School of Governance have been able to gather in person.

The speakers, Thomas Deisenhofer, Principal Adviser for ex post economic evaluation Directorate-General, Competition at the European Commission and Griet Jans, Chief Economist and Member of the Managing Board of the Belgian Competition Authority, reflected on the challenges and prospects for competition enforcement, especially amidst the economic, technological upheaval of recent years, and discussed the priorities and possible solutions going forward.

We are incredibly proud of our partnership with the Brussels School of Governance. This will join two world-class institutions to undertake a range of academic collaborations including scholarly interaction, cooperative research, and student/staff exchanges.
