Theories of Harm in Digital Mergers

In her recent contribution, published in the European Competition Journal, Vicky Robertson discusses adapting theories of harm in digital merger control. Based on her 2022 Report to the European Commission and her 2023 background paper for the OECD, Vicky shows trends and discusses challenges in the application of traditional theories of harm to digital merger cases based on an empirical survey of 97 national merger cases in the EU Member States and the United Kingdom.
