WE ARE COMPETITION
Muhammad Rifky Wicaksono is a competition law lecturer at the Faculty of Law, Universitas Gadjah Mada in Indonesia. He obtained the Magister Juris degree with Distinction from the University of Oxford as a Jardine-Oxford Scholar and he has recently been admitted to the LL.M. program at Harvard Law School.
Like many other developing countries, public enforcement through Indonesia’s Competition Authority (KPPU) has been the fulcrum of Indonesia’s competition law enforcement. However, they fail to provide effective judicial redress to victims of competition law infringement. This presentation will explore the normative justifications for including private enforcement to strengthen Indonesia’s antitrust enforcement efforts. Subsequently, a comparative legal analysis will be made with EU law to provide policy recommendations on how private enforcement can be regulated in Indonesia. The presentation aims to serve as a case study and as a catalyst for further discussion on the application of private enforcement in developing countries.
Rifky’s presentation will be followed by a discussion with the participants. This presentation is based on an article that Rifky co-authored, which was recently published in a leading comparative law journal in Asia (Abstract).
