Power to the People: Enhancing Competition Law Enforcement in Indonesia Through Private Enforcement

On April 4th, We Are Competition hosted Muhammad Rifky Wicaksono, competition law lecturer at 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. Based on the foregoing, the presentation explored the normative justifications for including private enforcement to strengthen Indonesia’s antitrust enforcement efforts. Subsequently, Rifky made a comparative legal analysis between Indonesian and EU law to provide policy recommendations on how private enforcement can be regulated in Indonesia. 

This presentation was based on an article that Rifky co-authored, which was recently published in a leading comparative law journal in Asia. The paper can be accessed here.
