Dr. Ben Van Rompuy joined the IES team as a Ph.D. researcher in 2006. He obtained his degree of Doctor of Law from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (2011) with a dissertation entitled ‘Is Economic Efficiency the Be-All and And-All of Modern Antitrust Enforcement? The past, current, and future role of non-efficiency considerations in the application of Article 101 TFEU’. His research interests lie primarily in the area of EU/US competition law, with a focus on questions of normative conflict resolution (particularly in the audiovisual and telecommunications sectors) and the role of economic thinking in the formulation of legal norms. He also has a keen interest in the interface between sport and EU law. Ben Van Rompuy is currently furthering his research as a Postdoctoral Visiting Fellow at Georgetown University Law Center, affiliated to the Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL). For his stay at Georgetown Law, he has been awarded the Franqui Foundation Fellowship of the Belgian American Educational Foundation (B.A.E.F.). Ben Van Rompuy is also affiliated to SMIT, a research partner in IBBT (Studies on Media, Information and Telecommunication). In 2009, he was a visiting research scholar at New York University (NYU).
