On 20 November 2023, ASCOLA met for an online event, the ASCOLA NOEL, to discuss current development in competition law. The global roundtable, moderated by Giorgio Monti, assembled Mor Bakhoum (Senegal), Soojin Nam (Korea), Eleanor Fox (USA), Vlatka Butorac Malnar (Croatia), Magali Eben (UK) and Juan David Gutiérrez (Colombia). The discussion took place on the eve of the 20th birthday of ASCOLA – the Academic Society for Competition Law was founded in November 2003 in Munich. On this occasion, Josef Drexl, the founding president, shared some memories and ideas with the 80 participants. A video recording will be available on YouTube soon.
