In this invitation-only workshop on 6 February 2018, Professor Akman delivered a talk on the challenges of digital markets and of Brexit for UK competition policy. In October 2017, she was one of three academics to give oral evidence to the House of Lords EU Committee, Internal Market Sub-Committee’s inquiry into Brexit and competition policy. The final report of the Committee citing Professor Akman’s evidence on numerous occasions was published on 2 February 2018.
