European Commission Decisions on Competition provides a comprehensive economic classification and analysis of all European Commission decisions adopted pursuant to Articles 101, 102 and 106 of the FEU Treaty from 1962 to 2009. It also includes a sample of landmark European merger cases. The decisions are organised according to the principal economic theory applied in the case. For each economic category, the seminal Commission decision that became a reference point for that type of anticompetitive behaviour is described. For this, a fixed template format is used throughout the book. All subsequent decisions in which the same economic principle was applied are listed chronologically. It complements the most widely used textbooks in industrial organisation, competition economics and competition law, to which detailed references are offered. The book contains source material for teachers and students, scholars of competition law and economics, as well as practising competition lawyers and officials.

The European Commission has produced an annual report on competition policy developments in the European Union since 1971. The report provides detailed information on the most important policy and legislative initiatives, as well as on decisions adopted by the European Commission in application of EC competition law. The 2010 report describes: - how the instruments of competition policy (anti-trust, merger and State aid rules) were further developed and applied in general; - how a mix of these and other instruments was used in selected priority economic sectors such as energy, financial services, telecommunications and IT; - cooperation with national competition authorities and courts within the European Union, and with international organisations and external countries; - cooperation with other EU institutions in the field of competition. This volume contains the report adopted by the Commission on 10 June 2010 and a more detailed Commission staff working document. It is available for sale in English, French and German from EU Bookshop and agreed sales agents.

This is the first EU competition law treatise that fully integrates economic reasoning in its treatment of the decisional practice of the European Commission and the case-law of the European Court of Justice. Since the European Commission's move to a "more economic approach" to competition law reasoning and decisional practice, the use of economic argument in competition law cases has become a stricter requirement. Many national competition authorities are also increasingly moving away from a legalistic analysis of a firm's conduct to an effect-based analysis of such conduct, indeed most competition cases today involve teams composed of lawyers and industrial organisation economists. Competition law books tend to have either only cursory coverage of economics, have separate sections on economics, or indeed are far too technical in the level of economic understanding they assume. Ensuring a genuinely integrated approach to legal and economic analysis, this major new work is written by a team combining the widely recognised expertise of two competition law practitioners and a prominent economic consultant. The book contains economic reasoning throughout in accessible form, and, more pertinently for practitioners, examines economics in the light of how it is used and put to effect in the courts and decision-making institutions of the EU. A general introductory section sets EU competition law in its historical context. The second chapter goes on to explore the economics foundations of EU competition law. What follows then is an integrated treatment of each of the core substantive areas of EU competition law, including Article 101 TFEU, Article 102 TFEU, mergers, cartels and other horizontal agreements and vertical restraints.

The EU's policies for enforcing competition in the single market and restricting state subsidies are among its biggest success stories. But the way the European Commission 'referees' state aid and competition cases is coming under increasing attack. Some EU governments, most notably France and Germany, argue the Commission is over zealous, in its approach - holding back the creation of European 'champions'. Meanwhile, many in the US accuse the Commission of being too interventionist and anti-American. This new CER pamphlet advises the Commission to stand firm against those who seek to water down the EU's state aid and competition policies. The promotion of national champions does not save jobs and it inflicts considerable costs on other businesses. Instead, the Commission should focus on modernising EU competition policies. It should make its decision-making more transparent to show that there is no political interference in the process. For example, the competition commissioner should set out in an open letter his or her decision on a merger or anti-trust case. This letter should then be made public after the full Commission has taken a final decision.The Commission should also pay much greater attention to the needs of consumers rather than competitors. It should create a new consumers affairs directorate-general which could act as powerful advocate for Europe's consumers in all commission policies. Above all, the Commission should ensure that its competition policies support the EU's economic reform agenda. It should aim to raise the overall level of competition within the EU's single market, rather than simply policing mergers and anti-trust cases. Thus it should place much more emphasis on scrutinising the barriers to competition posed by regulation and help to ensure a level playing field across Europe.

One of the fundamental challenges currently facing the EU is that of reconciling its economic and environmental policies. Nevertheless, the role of environmental protection in EU competition law and policy has often been overlooked. Recent years have witnessed a shift in environmental regulation from reliance on command and control to an increased use of market-based environmental policy instruments such as environmental taxes, green subsidies, emissions trading and the encouragement of voluntary corporate green initiatives. By bringing the market into environmental policy, such instruments raise a host of issues that competition law must address. This interdisciplinary treatment of the interaction between these key EU policy areas challenges the view that EU competition policy is a special case, insulated from environmental concerns by the overriding efficiency imperative, and puts forward practical proposals for achieving genuine integration.

. . . Arianna Andreangeli s book can be strongly recommended. Academics and practitioners active in the field of competition law, EU law and human rights will certainly find much of interest in this book. Volker Soyez, European Competition Law Review This book is well structured and well written. . . The volume represents an important contribution to the existing legal literature on fundamental rights protection in the EU legal order from a competition law perspective. Giacomo Di Federico, Common Market Law Review This book discusses the procedural rights enjoyed by those being investigated under Articles 81 and 82 of the EC Treaty and of the Merger Control Regulation, and their right to challenge the Commission s decision in the Community Courts. It further assesses how their rights to due process in competition proceedings before the European Commission comply with the notion of administrative fairness enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, in accordance with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. In this study, Arianna Andreangeli takes into account key developments such as modernisation and its impact on competition proceedings before the Commission, the debate on the principles of legal professional privilege, the protection against self incrimination, the rule of ne bis in idem and the possibility of establishing an EU competition court . It offers an examination of the right to be heard, the right to have access to the Commission-held evidence, and to legal professional privilege, and the right to silence and to seek judicial review of Commission decisions and assess them in the light of the Strasbourg court s case law. Academics active in the area of competition law, EU law and human rights, as well as practitioners active in the area of competition law will find much to interest them in this book.
