In a new book Arianna Andreangeli, Liverpool Law School, University of Liverpool brings together two topics that generally do not get much discussion among competition policy types in her book EU Competition Enforcement And Human Rights.
BOOK ABSTRACT: This book discusses the procedural rights enjoyed by those being investigated under Articles 81 and 82 of the EC Treaty and of the Merger Control Regulation and their right to challenge the Commission's decision in the Community Courts. It further assesses how their rights to ‘due process’ in competition proceedings before the European Commission comply with the notion of ‘administrative fairness’ enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, in accordance with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
