A LEGAL HISTORICAL REVIEW OF THE EU COMPETITION RULES

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Anca Daniela Chirita, Durham University - Department of Law offers A LEGAL HISTORICAL REVIEW OF THE EU COMPETITION RULES.

ABSTRACT: The article reviews the history of the European Union competition rules: Article 101 TFEU, in particular the historical and comparative context of the 'object' and 'effect' distinction; the possibility of a gap under Article 102 TFEU; the relationship between unfair competition and the prohibition of discrimination, and the broader meaning of distortions of competition. It reveals new insights based on the consideration of several historical documents starting with the Schuman Plan, the Founding Treaty establishing the EC Community of Steel and Coal (ECSC) and the negotiations of the Treaty of Rome.
