Coherence in EU Competition Law

«This book indeed contains, as the series editors claim, "important and original" research ... a very pleasant, inspiring and at times enlightening read ... this is a book that will be familiar to those who have a background in EU competition law. ... What they may learn are the connecting themes and horizontal issues that are all too easily obscured when focusing on the many nooks and crannies of EU competition law. The novice will find the pace of this book challenging, but an abundance of references may help her or him.»

Hans Vedder, European Competition Law Review
EU competition law plays a central role in the process of European integration both as a multifaceted tool for creating and policing the internal market as well as in organising national markets. Yet as a consequence of this role it is also subject to increasingly complex demands, a proliferation of (sectoral) regimes, and multiple objectives at both an EU and national level. Les mer

Om boka

EU competition law plays a central role in the process of European integration both as a multifaceted tool for creating and policing the internal market as well as in organising national markets. Yet as a consequence of this role it is also subject to increasingly complex demands, a proliferation of (sectoral) regimes, and multiple objectives at both an EU and national level. This profligacy entails risks of fragmentation and divergence - which could jeopardise the
proper functioning of the internal market. In this examination of EU competition law, Wolf Sauter discusses three main issues: (i) what degree of coherence exists in EU competition law; (ii) how this coherence can be explained, particularly in the broader context of integration by EU law; and (iii)
how it contributes to the legitimacy and effectiveness of EU competition law.

Specific focus is placed on antitrust, while mergers, state aid control, as well as the sectoral regimes for energy and electronic communications are also examined. In addition the book also charts the history and framework of these competition regimes that jointly constitute EU competition law, defining both its objectives and limitations.

«On the whole, the book is an interesting read for specialists of competition policy history, and of the comparison between the EEC/EU and the US.»
