Inge Graef Consumer protection & Competition policy: an overview of EU and national case law


This contribution explores how the role of consumer protection evolved in selected areas of EU and national competition law in the past years from two perspectives: (1) consumers as the object of protection in competition cases and (2) consumers as the benchmark for assessing anticompetitive effects.
