This website compiles reviews of academic and practical developments concerning competition law that have been circulated since 2016 to the Competition Division of the OECD, and to an increasing number of recipients. It is not an OECD output: its contents merely reflect the views of its authorm and do not in any way represent or reflect the OECD’s views and positions on any of the topics covered.
Its author, Pedro Caro de Sousa, is an expert at the OECD (https://www.linkedin.com/in/pedro-caro-de-sousa/). Since he joined the OECD, Pedro has been working on a variety of competition-related topics, including country peer-reviews, scoping notes on future work, background papers on a variety of topics, and a number of specific projects – such as reports on corporate sanctions in Australia and on private competition enforcement in Mexico.
Pedro obtained a DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2013, where he has been a tutor – on and off – in EU and competition law since 2009. Before joining the OECD, Pedro was a lecturer in Law at the University of Reading, and a tutor at King’s College, University of London. He was also a Visiting Scholar at the European University Institute and an Associate Research Fellow at New York University’s School of Law. He has published a monograph on European and international economic law, and a number of articles and book chapters on a variety of legal topics, including competition law, EU law, international economic law, constitutional law and legal theory.
In addition to his academic experience, Pedro is a qualified lawyer in Portugal and a barrister of England and Wales. He worked for Linklaters LLP in both Lisbon and London between 2005 and 2014. Before that, he clerked for a judge of the Portuguese Constitutional Court between 2002 and 2004.
