This paper argues that the Commission’s reform suggestions aimed at streamlining NCAs into independent administrative agencies appear to neglect this variety of accountability mechanisms underlying current NCA institutional organisation and functioning. Given that those mechanisms each harbour incongruent expectations regarding the organisation and functioning of independent NCAs, failure to acknowledge such incongruence may in practice lead to less effective competition law enforcement. The purpose of this paper is therefore to uncover the different NCA independence perspectives underlying those accountability mechanisms and to look for legally sound ways to make them converge when designing or upgrading NCA independence in the context of the Regulation 1/2003 reform.

Within the framework of its Digital Single Market (DSM) agenda, the European Union proposes the adoption of new legislative proposals aimed at removing remaining obstacles to digital transactions. Proposals relate to the abolition of geo-blocking as well as data and copyright portability. Complementing competition law provisions, those initiatives would seek to create the conditions for a competitive e-commerce environment within the EU internal market. In doing so, the Commission implicitly but clearly seeks to replicate a regulatory and policy approach it had taken already from the 1990s onwards when liberalising the energy and electronic communication sectors. It can be submitted that the European Commission, in proposing its DSM regulation strategy and in setting the terms of its e-commerce sector inquiry, has paid insufficient attention so far to the various and complementary roles competition law can play in a more strictly regulated market environment. In an attempt to clarify the scope and role of EU competition law and its enforcement in a digital single market environment and to guarantee its coherent application with the proposed DSM regulations, this paper will reflect on the roles competition law can our should still play in this context. Proceeding in three parts, the first part of the paper will chart the interaction between competition law and market regulation proposals in the EU’s DSM context. Using examples from the geo-blocking, data portability and copyright proposals made, this part highlights how the EU institutions perceive the interaction between competition law provisions and market regulation in this context. On the basis of that analysis, the second part will frame the interaction between competition law and market regulation as perceived in the DSM strategy, by comparing it with earlier examples in the realm of energy and electronic communications. In doing so, this part will identify two important similarities (breaking up barriers to trade and facilitating cross-border competition) as well as two fundamental differences (absence of natural monopolies and of intensely state regulated sectors). Acknowledging those similarities and differences, it will be submitted, allows better to conceptualise the role of competition law in the particular DSM context. To that extent, the third part will present and analyse the tenability of three possible roles competition law can still play against this background. Assessing the advantages and limits of each approach, that part will invite the Commission to take a clearer stance regarding the choice of one of them. [less ▲]

In this paper, I would like to compare the doctrine of « commandeering » as recognised in U.S. constitutional law with the approach taken by the EU institutions when setting up the ECB’s single supervisory mechanism and the banking resolution framework. Starting from the fact that national supervisory authorities play an important albeit subordinate role in the EU’s banking supervision setup, I use the U.S. federalism approach as a means to point out the legitimacy and democratic accountability dangers this approach creates. Highlighting those potential difficulties in the first part of my presentation/paper, I subsequently analyse to what extent a more explicit commandeering doctrine – as recognised in U.S. constitutional law – could help overcome those difficulties and what steps need to be taken in that regard.

This presentation analyses to what extent the fundamental right to a fair trial has been instrumental in shaping or modifying the structure of national competition and financial market authorities in five States (the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium). Submitting that the ECtHR and the CJEU have succeeded in imposing a limited number of administrative organisation templates on administrative authorities and uncovering the limits of that approach, it will call for a more fundamental reflection on the risks and opportunities associated with inter- and supranational courts establishing, in a bottom-up fashion, administrative organisation templates subsequently imposed on States.

One of the most problematic issues currently sweeping data protection debates concerns the right to erasure of one’s personal data. Also known as the right to be forgotten, its recognition has potentially significant implications for human-robot interactions. Starting from the European Union’s increasing focus on recognising and framing this right, this position paper maps the relevance of linking right to be forgotten and privacy-sensitive HRI-fields, identifying relevant research questions along the way.
