Professor Akman gives oral evidence to the House of Lords
Professor Pinar Akman, Director of the Centre for Business Law and Practice, gave oral evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on Communications on 26 June 2018.
Professor Akman provided evidence in the context of the ongoing inquiry of the Communications Committee into whether to regulate the Internet or not. Professor Akman, a competition law expert, answered questions on the application of competition law in digital markets and in particular, to online platforms as well as on the intersection between regulation and competition in these markets. The evidence session was broadcast live on Parliament TV and can be watched back online.
In November 2017, Professor Akman was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize (£100,000) which she will use to continue her research into various aspects of the application of competition law in digital markets.
