We are happy to announce the Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) Position Paper on EU Competition Law and Cooperation Agreements for Sustainability, prepared by our founder Ayse Gizem for the FTAO and published in June 2020.
The FTAO has long been part of the debate on competition law and sustainability along with a wide network of civil society organizations, academics, policy makers and other actors.
This paper clarifies the FTAO’s position and offers concrete policy recommendations to EU policy makers. The paper offers answers to some topical questions such as: Why is cooperation sometimes preferable to unilateral action? Why cooperation rather than legislation? How has EU Competition Policy become less sustainable? And most importantly, what is the way forward?
