15 June 2023 - 10:00-13:00 CET OECD Conference Centre, Paris
Welfare standards in competition policy have been the subject of much debate. Often these discussions focus on a jurisdiction’s legislative history and what this infers the prevailing standard to be.

The roundtable will benefit from the intervention of invited experts and an OECD background note.
All related documentation will become available on this page.
