This incisive Research Handbook identifies and assesses the emerging trends in competition enforcement, investigating how such changes impact the enforcement approach of competition authorities and the behaviour of companies in an ever-evolving business and regulatory environment.

Insightful contributions from experts in the field of competition enforcement law cover anticompetitive agreements, unilateral conduct, and merger control, as well as exploring topics such as algorithmic collusion, market power and data, big data, industrial policy, consumer welfare, common ownership, and competition enforcement in digital platforms. Combining academic, practitioner, and enforcer perspectives, this expansive Research Handbook sheds light on topical developments concerning competition enforcement, representing an expansion of existing enforcement practices. The Research Handbook concludes by considering how competition authorities could address the proliferating competition enforcement challenges arising from the appearance of new markets, novel business models, and technological developments.

Bringing together unique perspectives on new trends affecting competition enforcement, this timely Research Handbook will prove invaluable to law firms with an international competition or merger law practice, as well as to economic consultants and competition and regulatory authorities. Comprehensive and accessible, its analysis of the latest developments and perspectives in competition enforcement establish the Research Handbook as essential reading material for scholars of law and business across the globe.
Critical Acclaim
‘Competition law and policy have a greater prominence today than at any time since the emergence of “antitrust” in the US at the turn of the nineteenth century. This volume of fascinating chapters enhances our understanding of the numerous and diverse challenges for all of us involved in this crucial part of our political economy.’
– Richard Whish, King’s College London, UK
