Based on general concepts of collective action, Private Enforcement of Antitrust analyses how collective litigation mechanisms can be designed to encourage victims of anti-competitive conduct to access justice.

Through the expert assessment of the US Federal Courts’ case on competition law, alongside that of domestic Europe, Arianna Andreangeli provides a fresh response to the issues surrounding collective litigation. The discussion is skillfully placed in the wider context of competition enforcement, whilst at the same time exploring both past and present trends. The book concludes that collective litigation of competition claims must strike a “fair balance” between respecting rules of due process and ensuring fuller access to justice.

An enlightening perspective, this book will be an invaluable resource for academics and competition civil justice experts. It will also be of interest to practitioners active in competition cases and policy makers concerned with human rights issues.
