In order to assume their economic responsibilities (more than 10% of GDP) in the general interest and within a liberalized framework, local authorities must better master the rules of competition.

This book asks three overarching questions:
 Under what conditions should local authorities face the problems posed by the growing influence of competition law and policy on the behaviour of private and public economic operators?
 How can the examination of national and Community law be merged in order to provide concrete solutions to local actors concerned by competition problems?
 How do competition analyses contribute to the redistribution of economic and political power between the State and local authorities?

The author’s answers are part of a perspective of strengthening democracy, while the critical periods of European integration and globalization are coming to a head.

This practical book, both precise and complete, is intended for elected officials and local managers, as well as for entrepreneurs and private operators. It will also be of interest to any citizen concerned by local action and by better management of public funds in an increasingly competitive and now European economic environment.
