Live comments from the CCP Summer Conference 2013

Jacques Steenbergen (Leuven, Belgian Competition Authority) discussed the relative merits of inquisitorial and prosecutorial models in the design of institutions for competition policy focussing on the independence and efficiencies of the respective models. He comes to the conclusion that there is no one-size-fits-all model. It all depends on the present legal culture.  The prosecutorial model requires an appropriate court or tribunal whereas in the inquisitorial model the investigation and decision powers should be separated. However there are several ways to achieve this goal.
