Abstract

This paper discusses challenges for competition authorities in the 21st century. Those challenges were identified on the basis of a statistical review of the articles published since January 2011 in five major antitrust law journals. The assumption underlying this literature review is that the topics that statistically attract the most the attention from contemporary antitrust scholars are those that will likely constitute the main challenges for 21st century competition authorities.

Keywords: Antitrust law and economics, market definition, guidance, settlements, fines, enforcement, leniency

JEL Classification: K21, L40
