Dr R. Wesseling (1969) has been named Professor of Competition Law and Regulation in the Faculty of Law (FdR) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Rein Wesseling's research interests include investigating the role that competition and economic regulation play in the European Union. He will be joining the Competition Law and Regulation research group at the interdisciplinary Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance, where research focuses on applied and normative study of law and governance in Europe. Key areas in this research group's work are the position of the consumer and the significance of consumer prosperity.
