Competition Law in Context: Workshop Retracing the Work of Professor Steve Anderman

Hosted in collaboration with the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies (SNELS)

In this workshop we seek to capture the common theme oriented towards the “big ideas” which kept Professor Steve Anderman’s attention throughout his academic career: ‘competition’ as a means to secure the very basis of the EU’s legal order. Steve has an outstanding talent to place legal problems into a broader context and framework. This is what we would like to retrace in his work, and what we seek to portray in this workshop.
