Personal profile

Research interests

Professor Nazzini’s research interests are in the areas of competition law, commercial arbitration and ADR. Professor Nazzini’s work on competition law has focussed extensively on enforcement, remedies and procedure. His work also focuses on procedural rights, both within the European Union and from a broader comparative constitutional law perspective. He has also written on abuse of dominance and the fundamental question of how legal rules develop in connection with, and relate to, the objectives of competition law and the influence of economics on policy development and enforcement priorities. As regards commercial arbitration and ADR, Professor Nazzini has been one of the first authors to explore the relationship between competition law and arbitration. His research currently focuses on how general doctrines such as res judicata and issue estoppel apply in international arbitration and how the principle of finality is or may be limited because of the multi-jurisdictional dimension of international arbitration.
