The School of Economic and Business Sciences (SEBS) will host this research seminar by Professor Massimo Motta from ICREA-Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

Exclusionary practices are contracts, pricing strategies, and more generally actions taken by dominant firms to deter new competitors from entering an industry, to oblige rivals to exit, to confine them to market niches, or to prevent them from expanding, and which ultimately cause consumer harm. This is certainly the most controversial area in competition policy. This seminar will introduce the recent advances in economic theory in this area, and will suggest principles and rules to guide competition enforcement by agencies and courts.
