Professor of Competition Law  
AREAS OF RESEARCH
Competition Law, Product Liability and Innovation

Steven Van Uytsel is Associate Professor in Competition Law. He received his legal education at the University of Antwerp. During his studies at the University of Antwerp, he spent half a year at Uppsala University in the framework of the European ERASMUS Exchange program. He then went on to complete his LL.M. & LL.D. at Kyushu University and his Master of Arts (Japanese Studies) at the Mercator Hogeschool (now Hogeschool Ghent, Campus Mercator). Steven specializes in competition law, with a particular interest in price-fixing, enforcement issues and the position of competition law in Asian countries.

Steven has been receiving several grants from the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science, including the Grant in Aid for Young Scholars on "Public Enforcement Institutions and Private Actors - Towards a More Effective Cooperation" (2011-2013), a Grant in Aid for Scientific Research (Kiban C) for research on "Anti-Cartel Enforcement: Toward a Holistic Understanding of Leniency Policies" (2015-2017) and "Artificial Intelligence, Price Setting Strategies and Antitrust Law: Towards a Regulatory Framework" (2018-2021).

Steven has further research interest in regulating innovation, especially in relation to algorithms and artificial intelligence. For this research, he has obtained the Kyushu University's QR Program's Tsubasa Grant for Interdisciplinary Research by Young Researchers (2018-2020).

Steven has been the convener of several conferences. The most recent ones are: "Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Algorithms: Regulation, Governance, Markets" (November 21-22, 2019) and "Collusion, Algorithms and Competition Law" (23 November 2019)

Featured Work



Research Handbook on Asian Competition Law
Steven Van Uytsel, together with Shuya Hayashi and John O. Haley, has compiled a Research Handbook that provides a comprehensive overview and discussion of the substantive competition law provisions of the ASEAN Plus Three region, including Hong Kong and Taiwan. Taking a unique comparative perspective, chapters examine Asian competition laws in relation to the existing laws that served as models for them, analyzing how and why they deviate. Expert contributions from both scholars and practitioners provide insight into the complex development of competition law in the region taking into account the growing number of competition law models, changing views on law convergence, enforcement practice and the progression of economic thought. Chapters highlight and explore the special features of these laws as a result, as well as draw conclusions on the perceptions of competition law in different ASEAN member states.
