The Objective of Article 102

Show Summary Details


This chapter identifies the objective of Article 102 through a process of literal and teleological interpretation. The conclusions reached through this hermeneutical process are tested by looking at the travaux préparatoires of the Treaty of Rome. Then, the case law on Articles 101 and 102 and the EU Merger regime are examined. Finally, conclusions are drawn.

Keywords: interpretation; Treaty of Rome; case law; Article 101; EU merger regime
