About this book:

Remedies in EU Competition Law: Substance, Process and Policy is an unparalleled book developed in collaboration with the College of Europe’s Global Competition Law Centre (GCLC). Remedies, designed to correct the negative effects of anti-competitive activity in markets, are central to competition law enforcement and act as a benchmark against which the efficiency of the overall system can be measured. A dearth of coverage which looks at issues, such as mergers, antitrust and State aid, quite a few recent high-profile decisions and an increased focus on areas such as digital markets, have triggered the need for an authoritative and comprehensive guide such as this.

What’s in this book:

This exceptional book provides well-articulated and practical commentaries by leading experts from the GCLC’s unique network which were originally presented at the 2019 GCLC annual conference. It elucidates topics under the following heads:

- Objectives and limitations of remedies;
- Types of remedies in competition law enforcement;
- Implementation and process;
- Ex post assessment of remedies and policy lessons;
- National and international approaches.

The group of authors includes the Director-General of the European Commission’s competition department, lawyers from major international firms, and well-known economists and academics specialising in competition law.

How this will help you: The matchless book will attract academics, practitioners and enforcers who are interested in the question of EU competition law remedies and how these interact with the substance and procedure of EU competition law.
