New Rules for Dominant Firms in Europe Mattias Ganslandt

The Commission has initiated a discussion about the application of the European competition rules for dominant firms. It recently published a Staff Discussion Paper which outlines some basic principles and raises a number of important questions, in particular related to the assessment of “exclusionary practices”

This paper argues that the current application of Article 82 has several material problems. The current form-based approach to Article 82 may reduce the incentives to strive for dominance and could also hinder the process of rationalization.

In this volume, edited by Lars Calmfors, IFN, and Nora Sánchez Gassen in cooperation with researchers from across the Nordic Region analyse how labour market integration of immigrants can be promoted.
