1 - 2 weeks availability


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. 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. The book is the result of a research conference in September 2012 at the Law Faculty at Copenhagen University
