Global Competition Law Centre

The Global Competition Law Centre (GCLC) of the College of Europe aims at promoting cutting-edge research in competition law and economics.

Unlike traditional research centres, the GCLC is not a brick and mortar organization. It has no physical presence on the campus of the College of Europe. It disseminates ideas and promotes research through its website. In addition, the GCLC benefits from a large network of competition professionals, built through the organization of regular activities in Europe and elsewhere.

Since its inception in January 2004, the GCLC has gained credentials as a high level discussion forum for academics, practitioners, and enforcement officers in the competition field across the world.

The GCLC regularly organizes conferences, publishes books and hosts a working papers series. In addition, the GCLC awards a yearly prize for the best dissertation in competition law and policy written at the College of Europe.
