Organizer

IMEDIPA

IMEDIPA (Institute of Studies in Competition Law and Policy), an independent, non-profit organization, was founded in February 2007. Its objective is to promote legal, policy and economic analysis of competition policy reforms in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Balkan region and the countries members of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Agreement, and to provide a research and discussion forum for academics, practitioners, and enforcement officers in the competition field in these jurisdictions.
IMEDIPA aims through external events, research projects and publications to stimulate research in competition law and policy and its application in specific industries (e.g. Energy, Maritime Transport, Telecoms, Information Technology, Financial Services). It also aims to promote a strong competition law community in this geographic area by organizing events and advancing the debate among competition law and economics scholars, policymakers and Competition authorities, the judiciary, practitioners, consumer associations as well as the business community.
