On the antitrust field, platform power continues to be in the spotlight. The Bundeskartellamt's decision against Facebook and the European Commission's interventions against Google brings some interesting views on how to deal with cases within the digital space. How will political change in Europe - if any - affect trans-Atlantic views on platform power? At this lunch seminar, FTC Commissioner Christine S. Wilson and JFTC Commissioner Reiko Aoki will address principles for sound enforcement in high technology markets including how to deal with digital platforms.
- Christine S. Wilson, Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
- Reiko Aiko, Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC)
- Dr Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, British Institute of International and Comparative Law

Becoming a member of the Competition Law Forum (CLF)
The Competition Law Forum is a centre of excellence for European competition and antitrust policy and law at BIICL. It provides a forum in which the practical application of competition policy is considered by lawyers, economists, senior business managers, public servants, public affairs professionals, consumer bodies and other specialist practitioners. The Forum identifies areas requiring debate and analysis, and provides the required forum and experts, thereby contributing to policy initiatives. In doing so it also produces leading-edge applied research, analysis and recommendations on the content, methodologies and application of competition policy at all levels of governance - national, European and global.
