In collaboration with Competition Policy International (CPI), we are delighted to introduce this three-part documentary that explores the intense debate around merger control in the digital age.

In this series, we sit down with top antitrust experts from the EU and UK to discuss the effectiveness of merger control in the digital age. They share valuable insights on different theories of harm, the challenges authorities face when evaluating mergers and remedies, the potential for emerging analytic tools, and the merits of potential reforms.
