Debate - Competition policy and industrial policy: for a reform of European law
Brussels - 21/01/2020
The Robert Schuman Foundation organises an event in Brussels to present the report "Competition policy and industrial policy: for a reform of European law".


The failures of certain merger projects such as the one of Alstom/Siemens call into question the inadequacy, or even obsolescence, of European competition law and its relation to other public policy objectives.
Furthermore, on the one hand, current law is faced with the challenges raised by the digital economy; on the other hand, European competition law does not take sufficient account of international competition.
Would it not be necessary to balance competition policy and industrial policy so that the objectives of the latter could be fully developed?
