Research interests

Research interests:

Magali’s research interests are: antitrust and digital markets, US and EU antitrust principles, consumer behaviour, citizenship, and EU free movement. She is particularly keen to work on projects concerning citizenry and consumer interests in competition law; the challenges for competition law created by innovation and technology; legal certainty and coherence in competition law; substance and impact of European citizenship.

Current work themes:

Magali is currently working on a book with Hart (Bloomsbury Publishing), entitled 'Market Definition for Digital Services: The Concepts of Product, Price, and Dynamic Competition'. The book is planned for 2023.

Magali is currently working on these themes:

  • How antitrust tackles ‘new’ conduct in digital industries: particularly how legal certainty, and the judicial standard of review, impact competition law decisions in the EU in these industries
  • The impact of divergences in national standards on the enforcement of EU competition law
  • How the current ‘consumer’ notion in EU competition law interacts with EU single market and citizenship.
  • Product market definition (for online services): utility and reform

Magali's submission to the European Commission's initiative on evaluation of the market definition notice is available here.
