Conference Debriefing (25): ASCOLA2021

For three days in a row, Rupprecht Podszun sat through the Annual Conference of ASCOLA, the Academic Society for Competition Law – a scholars-only event where research on antitrust is on display. Yes, he does that voluntarily, but he also serves as the Vice President of this organisation, so read his debrief with care.

Rupprecht Podszun was cooked (if not grilled) there, too. Here is his Conference Debriefing!

In Ascola-la-land: Scholarly trends in antitrust law

This year marked the beginning of the end of competition. Or so, the rock stars of the antitrust community said. They had a gig at one of my most favourite conferences: The Ascola Conference. Ascola is the Academic Society for Competition Law organising one big conference a year in different places, and its USP is that it only admits fans of competition law or economics who are in academia. (I am on the board of this lovely association, so there…
