Aurélien Portuese

Aurelien Portuese is director of the Schumpeter Project on Competition Policy, which advances a dynamic framework for competition policy in which innovation is a central concern for antitrust enforcement, not a secondary consideration. He is also an adjunct professor of law at the Global Antitrust Institute of George Mason University, and at the Catholic University of Paris. As an expert in U.S. antitrust and EU competition law and economics, Portuese has published extensively on these issues and has presented his research at international conferences. With 10 years of university experience (UK, France, Belgium, US), his research encompasses U.S. and European perspectives on the regulation of competition. A doctor in law from the University of Paris II (Sorbonne), Portuese has graduated from the London School of Economics, Sciences Po Paris, and from the University of Hamburg. He regularly speaks at conferences and seminars and regularly writes op-eds and academic articles. His book Antitrust Populism: Competition Policy in the Digital Era will be published in 2021 by Oxford University Press.
