The Transformation of EU Competition Law is a compendium assessing the successes and failures of the prevailing ‘modernisation’ policy and setting forth a range of potential legal adaptations designed to offer the right responses to a rapidly changing world by reviewing the current situation. The controversy surrounding EU competition rules has multiplied lately. Pressure from such phenomena as the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and the digital economy have fostered a fragmentation in the interpretation of the rules at both national and EU levels.
Drawing on the presentations at the 2022 Annual Conference of the Global Competition Law Center (GCLC) at the College of Europe in Bruges, this book brings together contributions by prominent practitioners and academics, officials of the European Commission, representatives of national competition authorities, and EU Court judges.
They address the following salient issues:
- free competition versus ‘regulated competition’ as alternative or complementary models;
- new methods for the identification of consumer harm and benefits;
- sui generis competition law regimes for specific sectors;
- State aid enforcement and crisis management; and
- the green and digital objectives and their legal and political implications.
The essays deliver a comprehensive treatment of the EU Courts’ jurisprudence and the literature in the field. They discuss the new competencies of the Commission, raise awareness of the latest case law on the analysis of effects, and ensure a forward-looking approach to competition law enforcement in Europe for practitioners, policymakers and academics working with competition law.
