CCC to discuss competition and consumer law on the panel of the ICC Inaugural Conference

The Institute for Competition and Consumers (ICC), Queen Mary University of London, will hold an inaugural conference on “The Limits of Consumer Empowerment in times of crisis: how to empower consumers while protecting the vulnerable?", on 21 April 2023 - 15h-17h UK time.

The event aims to reflect on the role and limits of competition law in empowering consumers as well as protecting vulnerable consumers in times of fast changing market dynamics. Equally, it will question the role of consumer law in empowering and protecting consumers and examine potential synergies between the two frameworks.
