Aims and Value in Competition Lawaf Caroline Heide-Jørgensen, Christian Bergqvist, Ulla Neergaard, Sune T. Poulsen red.
This book brings together essays from competition law scholars from different European countries discussing the topic of Aims and Values in Competition Law from different angles.With the Lisbon Treaty the principle of undistorted competition disappeared from the EU Treaty itself and was moved to a Protocol and the principle of social market economy was introduced. Together with the economization of competition law this has provoked a debate on the role of competition law in EU.The book is the result of a research conference in September 2012 at the Law Faculty at Copenhagen University.IndholdsoversigtPART I: GENERAL PERSPECTIVESIntroduction - by Caroline Heide-Jorgensen, Christian Bergqvist, Ulla Neergaard & Sune Troels PoulsenEU Competition Law from Rome to Lisbon – Social Market Economy - by Giorgio MontiConsumer Welfare in EU Competition Policy - by Svend Albæk, Chief Economist Team, Directorate-General for Competition PART II: PRIVATE DISTORTIONS OF COMPETITION, ARTICLE 101 TFEUThe Relationship between Article 101 (1) TFEU and Article 101 (3) TFEU 77 - by Caroline Heide-JørgensenIs there (Still) Room for Non-Economic Arguments in Article 101 TFEU Cases? - by Chris Townley PART III: PRIVATE DISTORTIONS OF COMPETITION, ARTICLE 102 AND MERGERSCan Consumer Welfare Convincingly be said to be an Objective of Article 102 when the Methodology Relies on an Inference of Effects - by Liza Lovdahl GormsenUse and Abuse of Competition Law in Pursuit of the Single Market.
