Dr Pinar Akman presents her research at international conference in Istanbul
Dr Pinar Akman, an Associate Professor in Law and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Business Law and Practice, has presented her research at an international conference on 6 June 2014 in Istanbul.
The conference entitled “New Challenges in Competition Law Enforcement” was organised by University College London (UCL), the Institute for Studies in Competition Law and Policy (IMEDIPA) and the Centre for Commercial Law and Financial Regulation at the University of Reading. At the conference, Dr Akman presented her thoughts on the role of ‘object’ in the EU prohibition of abuse of dominance under Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. The discussion took place within the context of the object versus effects dichotomy existing in EU competition law.
Dr Akman’s presentation was based on her forthcoming article in European Law Review entitled ‘The Role of Intent in the EU Case Law on Abuse of Dominance’ to be published in 2014.
