Droit européen de la concurrence - Ententes et abus de position dominante

The prohibition of cartels and abuses of dominant position has been the historical foundation that has made it possible, in the construction of Europe, to affirm a culture of competition resolutely oriented towards the protection of the collective welfare.

Whether through secret cartels, pernicious contractual techniques, abuses through the exclusion of deserving competitors or the exploitation of rents, this right tracks down price increases, territorial partitioning, production limitations, quality reductions and the confiscation of innovation.

Entitled "Competition Policies", the first title develops the historical, economic and legal tenets. The second deals with the fundamental elements of the concept of market power and the scope of application of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU. The third and fourth titles detail the qualifications of "agreement" and "abuse of dominant position". Finally, the last heading describes in depth the procedural implementation of antitrust law in the public (public enforcement) and private (private enforcement) spheres.

The book is aimed at the academic world and competition law practitioners (judges, members of the European competition authorities, lawyers, company lawyers) and offers them a comprehensive presentation of antitrust law in its origins, current events and anticipated developments, as the subject is in a constant state of flux.
