About City


This module deploys European Union merger law as a framework upon which to understand the economics, policy and law of mergers. The module covers the key procedural issues, such as the "one stop shop" principle, forum shopping tactics and international-co-operation in merger control. The module looks at the underlying economics as to why regulators seek to block certain types of mergers; the legal definition of merger or acquisition; Community Dimension; market definition and the substantive assessment of significantly impeding effective competition; collective dominance, joint ventures and ancillary restraints.
