ConPolicy presents status quo analysis of consumers in markets at a conference organized by the Bundestags-Fraction of the Social Democrats

Consumer markets have radically changed in the past decades. In a conference with the title “Strengthening consumer interests – Introducing consumer watchdogs” the Bundestags-Fraction of the Social Democrats investigates how the market power of consumers vis-à-vis companies can be strengthened particularly in the markets for financial services, energy, health and in the digital world. In this context, ConPolicy Director, Dr Christian Thorun, will present a status quo analysis of consumers in markets. Furthermore he participates at a panel discussion on the issue “The concept of consumer watch dogs – an adequate instrument to empower consumer interests?” He will debate this issue with Dr Carsten Sieling (MP), Gerd Billen (Executive Director of the Federation of German Consumer Organisations), Herbert Jüttner (Member of the Management Board of the Bankenverband) and Dr Bernhard Rohleder (Director General of BITKOM).
