Competition Law in the EU

Principles, Substance, Enforcement

Johan W. van de Gronden, Professor of European Law and Catalin S. Rusu, Associate Professor of European Law, Department of International and European Law, Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands

This incisive textbook enhances understanding of EU competition law, exploring significant substantive and enforcement issues relating to antitrust, merger control and state aid law. Providing an examination of well-established doctrines, landmark judgements and the impact of recent developments, this textbook also highlights the importance of the interplay between domestic and European competition law by discussing national competition rules and frameworks.

‘This clear and accessible resource on EU antitrust law and policy is a welcome addition to the literature. Johan van de Gronden and Catalin Rusu have successfully distilled a wide range of EU case law and policy into a critical account of the direction of EU law. Increasingly, knowledge of EU antitrust law is of importance to understand not only the internal policy approach, but also how this influences external EU trade policy, alongside comparative approaches to antitrust policy.’
– Erika Szyszczak, University of Sussex, UK
