The underlying cause of this disarray, the authors of this deeply engaged work contend, lies in a host of legal uncertainties scattered around the intersection where private enforcement encounters the mechanisms of decentralized public enforcement – an area where a number of general as well as special questions of EU competition law, even its very goals and principles, rise to prominence.

In this truly authoritative book, eleven well-known European jurists and academics, all experts in competition law, offer in-depth perspectives on these questions and reveal conflicts between EU competition law and enforcement regimes. The subjects on which they focus include the following :

  • agreements and concerted practices ;
  • the effect on trade criterion ;
  • the quasi legislative role of the Commission ;
  • the need to preserve a central role for the preliminary ruling mechanism ;
  • burden and standard of proof issues ;
  • the role of experts ;
  • the abuse of a dominant position in the form of ‘margin squeeze’ ;
  • the lack of transparency characterizing the European Competition Network ;
  • leniency programmes and the circulation of evidence ;
  • calculation of damages and the passing-on defence ;
  • peculiarities of antitrust enforcement in the e-communications sector ;
  • EU legislative competences in the audiovisual sector ;
  • specific features of the pharmaceutical sector ; and
  • recent enforcement in the financial services sector.

A cumulative effect of the analysis and commentary emerges : that the issues of transparency and process of law raised in this book are profoundly related to the crisis of legitimation that the European Union is currently facing. For this reason the book will be of great interest not only to practitioners, academics, jurists, and officials in competition law, but to a wider legal community as well.
