Citation: Oxford ; Portland : Hart Publishing, 2014
This volume contains papers presented at the 17th Annual EU Competition Law and Policy Workshop, organized by Philip Lowe and Mel Marquis and held at the European University Institute on 13-14 July 2012. From a variety of angles the book explores the themes of competition, regulation and certain public policies; their interactions; and, in some cases, their mutual tensions. The authors of the various chapters consider legal and economic issues relating to network industries, industrial, environmental and trade policy, and intellectual property and innovation policies, among others. Comparative views and the views of judges from different jurisdiction are provided, and techniques for mediating among different policy objectives and frameworks are discussed.
