Ompetition law is about making competition work for a wider benefit to society
Competition law is about making competition work for a wider benefit to
society. Critically analyse the way in which UK and EC competition authorities utilise non-economic policy goals to develop their respective competition law
In your coursework you should analyse at least two of the following policy
areas: market definition, anti-competitive agreements, abuse of a dominant
position, competition law enforcement, or merger control.
The question focuses on wider non-economic policies that impact on competition law. The sort of non-economic policy influences that have been seen include: industrial policy, market integration, social policy (including the importance of sport), employment, and the environment. Again the professor is interested in how these policies have influenced the development of competition law.
