Competition Law & Policy Debate (CLPD) is a quarterly journal focusing on major developments in Mergers, Cartels, Antitrust (Art.101/102 other than cartels) and State Aid. CLPD contains articles of academic value but written in an approachable style to address practical questions and suggest solutions to new issues. Its focus is on dissecting, analyzing and criticizing the most recent and important legislation and case law, as well as on discussing questions faced by enforcers and practitioners but neglected in the existing literature. The idea is for CLPD to become an important platform for lawyers and economists to express conflicting views and, in particular, encourage the debate on new developments in all areas of competition law. In this way the journal wants to contribute to debates on policy - or even start them. The articles are written by economists and lawyers, judges, officials at DG Competition, national authorities or international organizations, practitioners working in-house or in law firms as well as academics. This mix should result in a unique exchange of views, opinions and ideas. Each issue of the CLPD focuses on one principal topic that is discussed from different angles and potentially with different interests in mind. In addition, the journal includes a yearly synopsis of the principal law & policy developments in each of the four mentioned fields and is published in both hardcopy and digitally.
