EUROPEAN COMPETITION LAW: ENFORCEMENT AND COMPARATIVE ISSUES

The aim of the course is to examine the emergence of a European competition system interlinking EC competition law and the competition laws of the different Member States of the European Union focusing on the enforcement of competition law at the European Union and national level and on the competition law regimes of selected EU Member States (e.g. UK, France, Germany).

The recent “modernisation” of European competition law (Regulation 1/2003) and the importance accorded to private enforcement of competition law in Europe change dramatically the centralised system of the previous regulation 17/62, which provided the foundations of European competition law enforcement during the last forty years.

The course will fully integrate a comparative law and economics approach in analyzing the new system of enforcement of European competition law through the lenses of the optimal enforcement theory, choice of law theories and game theory. More specifically, Part I of the course will examine the framework of competition law enforcement at the European Union level (public, private enforcement, arbitration). Part II of the course will examine the competition law regimes of important EU Member States (such as the UK, France, Germany, Italy). In particular, the focus will be on (1) how EC competition law is interpreted and enforced by the national competition authorities and courts, and (2) in what respect the Member States’ national competition law regimes find different (or similar) solutions to EC Competition law.

Taught by Dr Ioannis Lianos (UCL) and Dr Florian Wagner-von Papp (UCL)

When:
Wednesdays: 9am - 11am
11 x 2 hours tuition
January 2010 - March 2010

  • History of Regulated Industries – Common law – evolution to regulation, theories of regulation, rationales
  • Choice between public private ownership, intermediate forms (PPP)
  • Liberalization of Energy and Telecommunications/ Deregulation movement (EU, US, UK)
  • Regulatory process: institutional design of regulatory agencies in Europe and the US, judicial review
