Sanctions in EU competition law: principles and practice
The precise distribution between national and European rules within EU competition law influence the costs of the enforcement structure. This influence can be explained by the perception of laws and regulations as 'goods', which come about in more or less efficient production processes.
The enforcement of EU competition law by the member states is subject to national and European rules. The relevant rules on the European level are mainly set by the jurisdiction of the ECJ and are therefore dynamic.
In his Ph.D. project, Michael Frese analyzed national and European rules of enforcement of competition law and built a framework, based on economic principles, for further developing this field of law.
