Abstract

The digital economy has brought new challenges to the enforcement of competition, consumer and data protection laws. The same company behaviour can fall within the competence of different authorities. Likewise, the effectiveness of remedies in digital markets often requires the input of different authorities, especially regarding consumer-facing remedies and remedies involving the sharing of consumers’ personal information. This paper discusses different proposals about how to optimise public enforcement in digital markets by enhancing the co-operation between competition agencies, data protection and consumer bodies in the EU.
