The Foundations of European Union Competition Law

The Objective and Principles of Article 102

Renato Nazzini

Oxford Studies in European Law

  • A scholarly, analytical discussion which contributes to the debate on the objectives of EU competition law and Article 102 at a crucial juncture in the development of the law
  • Contains innovative solutions to the problems addressed, which challenge fundamental assumptions and thus contribute to moving the debate and scholarly research in new directions
  • Detailed analysis of individual types of abuse, which gives comprehensive coverage of Article 82 case law and enforcement practice
  • Establishes a intellectually robust and practically workable analytical framework for abuse of dominance which is consistent with the key principles developed in the case law and the teleological interpretation of Article 102 within the overall framework of the EU Treaties
  • Clarifies and develops legal tests for exclusionary, exploitative, and discriminatory abuses in light of the relevant economic insights from the neoclassical foundations of competition law to post-Chicago game-theoretic analysis
  • Extensive critical review of the case law, Commission practice, and literature, which will inform both academics and practitioners
