Wednesday, June 1, 2022 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT (UTC–04:00)
Public Event: Virtual Event

The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) is pleased to invite you to our second virtual event in the Competition Policy Series, “What Can Canada Learn from International Developments in Competition Policy?”, taking place on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, from 12:00 PM–1:00 PM EDT (UTC-04:00).

Digital technologies are reshaping markets in many profound ways, and these changes are creating new challenges for competition authorities around the world. As Canada looks ahead to a consultation on the modernization of the Competition Act, it is critical that we look to and learn from recent experiences of other jurisdictions. In this second of three weekly panels, we will discuss recent developments in the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States, as competition authorities move into the regulation of digital markets.

We will be joined by London School of Economics Associate Professor Orla Lynskey, EU and UK competition law expert Stephen Kinsella, and global internet policy and technology researcher Chris Riley. The session will be moderated by CIGI Senior Fellow Taylor Owen.

This session is free and open to all, and no prior expertise is required or expected.
