CCP Seminar Series | 30 June 2017, EFRY 1.01
CCP SEMINAR SERIES | SPRING SEMESTER 2017
The next CCP seminar will be with Sebastian Peyer (CCP & LAW) presenting on ‘EU Damages Directive: stakeholder responses to public consultations’
ABSTRACT: The paper analyses the responses to two public consultations – the Green and the White Paper – the European Commission (DG Comp) held in preparation of the EU Damages Directive (2014/104/EU). The Damages Directive aims at facilitating private antitrust damages actions in the EU Member States and contains a number of measures that are to help victims to receive full compensation in the national courts while maintaining a balance between public and private enforcement. The paper tracks the development of most measures contained in the Directive and the stakeholders’ responses to the Commission’s questions. The paper reports changes of stakeholders’ views between consultations as well as an overrepresentation of some groups of stakeholders. While it is difficult to assess the actual decision-making process in the Commission, the research suggests that the Commission considers stakeholders’ views. The results also indicate that the framing of consultations can influence the public’s view on private actions.
The seminar will take place between 1-2pm in the EFRY 1.01. Tea will be served after the seminar in the Social Area on Floor 0. Everyone is welcome.
