Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
The EU is faced with the challenges of fashioning practices and institutions that reconcile the conflicting demands on political representatives from their international partners and their domestic constituents. This has been particularly manifest in the eurozone recently, but it reflects a deeper challenge which also concerns non euro-area members such as the UK.

About the UCL Laws conference
EU competition law is in constant evolution. The most remarkable recent developments have occurred in the context of the interpretation by the courts of Article 102 TFEU, as well as the recent proposal for a Damages directive and the way private enforcement of EU competition law will interact with public enforcement. Recent cases of the Court of Justice of the EU have challenged the options promoted by the proposed Damages Directive, while the important fines and far reaching remedies imposed or negotiated by the European Commission have yet again raised the question on any existing boundaries to its discretion in this area. A panel of distinguished speakers from academia and practice will comment on the most recent developments in EU competition law and will provide their critical perspectives on the way ahead. The conference will focus on recent developments in Article 102 TFEU jurisprudence, the interaction between private and public enforcement post the Damages Directive proposal and the Pfiederer and Donau Chemie judgements of the Court and the question of the extent of fines and remedies.
The conference is accredited with 4 CPD hours by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board.
