6th AIJA Annual Antitrust Conference: Competition Law Procedures - The Ultimate Guidance Through Stormy Waters
01 June 2017 - 03 June 2017
The 6th AIJA Annual Antitrust Conference 2017 will take place on 1-3 June 2017 in Amsterdam and will focus on procedural issues in competition law matters. The objective of this conference will be to approach these questions in a practical manner, as well as with a critical eye and, if need be, to come up with improvement proposals. As usual with our annual conferences, high level scientific discussions will take place in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere, taking advantage of spring in the Netherlands’ capital. Procedural matters, due process and human rights in a corporate perspective intersperse all aspects of the law. Given the interests at stake in competition law, these issues are of particular importance to our field of law. Whether at national level or at the level of supranational courts and authorities, many questions arise in relation to due process, rights of the defence and the organization of investigations and proceedings. The discussions during the scientific program will therefore touch upon, among others, the following subjects:
- Rights of defence in a global perspective;
- Fact-finding by competition authorities and internal investigations;
- Procedural issues and merger control;
- Legal review.
Of course, it would not be a proper AIJA conference without an equally interesting and enjoyable social program. Rest assured that there will be ample opportunity to enjoy the best spots in Amsterdam.
AIJA is looking forward to welcoming you to Amsterdam!

Antitrust investigations are becoming increasingly international. Authorities are also increasingly able to exchange information. Coordinating multijurisdictional investigations (internal or external) can be challenging because they involve cross-border data flows and the need for coordinating leniency procedures. Data protection rules and blocking statutes must be adhered to.
