The Pros and Cons

The Swedish Competition Authority annually arrange an international research seminar under the theme “The Pros and Cons”. At the seminar researchers and experts present their view on a particular competition issue.

The event “Pros and Cons” is arranged to disseminate and deepen the knowledge of central topics within the competition area and to allow researchers and practitioners to meet and exchange ideas. Since the first seminar in 2002, prominent economists and lawyers have discussed the pros and cons of interesting issues within the competition law.

The seminar has traditionally been held in November each year, a tradition that from now on will be changed. Forthcoming conferences will instead be arranged annually in May/June.

The next conference, The Pros and Cons of Sustainability Considerations, will be held on May 30, 2022. More details about the programme and practical matters will be published on this page in March, 2022.
