CESEL publishes book on Aims and Values in Competition Law

Aims and Values in Competition Law The book is a result of an international research conference in 2012 on Aims and Values in Competition Law.

With the entering into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the principle of undistorted competition in Article 3(1), litra g) EC disappeared from the Treaty itself and was moved to a Protocol. The new Article 3 TEU determines that the European Union now shall work for the sustainable development of Europe based on balanced economic growth and price stability, a highly competitive social market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress, and a high level of protection and improvement of the quality of the environment.

The conference focused on these changes and discussed the aims and values of competition law and whether or not the introduction of ‘a highly competitive social market economy’ will/shall influence the future shaping of competition law.

The book is edited by Caroline Heide-Jorgensen, Christian Bergqvist, Ulla Neergaard & Sune Troels Poulsen and is published by DJØF Publishing, see http://www.djoef-forlag.dk/da/boeger/a/aims-and-values-in-competition-law

The book is published with funds from Dreyers Fond, Reinhold W. Jorck og Hustrus Fond, and Knud Højgaards Fond
