On 11 June 2013 the European Commission adopted a long awaited legislative proposal on the treatment of damage claims in antitrust contexts.

The EC Vice-President Joaquín Almunia has announced that the proposal would be discussed by the European Parliament in the coming weeks. The initiative aims at allowing victims of antitrust abuses to obtain compensation in any of the EU (soon) 28 Member States in a consistent and effective manner. It should also contain measures to prevent the risk that whistle-blowers’ incentives to collaborate with antitrust authorities would be jeopardized.

In this Competition Policy Lab seminar, Carles Esteva Mosso, Director of Policy and Strategy at Dg-Competition introduced the EC proposal. A discussion followed, led by Maarten Pieter Schinkel, Professor of Economics at the University of Amsterdam and ACLE .
