On 4th and 5th December 2015, ENTraNCE for Executives had its second workshop, dealing with the antitrust concerns raised by traditional and online platforms. The event was divided into 4 panels over two half-days. The workshop gathered different stakeholders, who exchanged ideas concerning the challenges of enforcing competition rules in markets where platforms play a central role. Attendees included representatives of National Competition Authorities (NCAs), international organizations, academia, industry, as well as law and consulting firms. The workshop generated a lively debate. While there was consensus among participants on some issues, it also emerged that a number of questions needed to be further investigated. This policy brief aims at summarizing the main points raised during the discussion. Moreover, the brief aims at stimulating further debate and defining the background for a possible follow-up workshop on the same topic.
