New Publication on the Excessive Pricing during the Covid-19 Crisis in the EU

Behrang Kianzad from CeBIL recently published a new paper on the Excessive Pricing during the Covid-19 Crisis in the EU. The research states that the European approach differs from the approaches chosen in the US and South Africa, where crisis-specific price gouging laws have been enacted and applied by the competition authorities. Also, it is pointed out that there is room to reflect on the normative and empirical EU competition law approaches to unfair, exploitative pricing abuses, both during and beyond the pandemic.

The paper is available at:
