CoRe 3/2021 Out Now

Issue 3/2021 of the European Competition and Regulatory Law Review (CoRe) is now available. In this edition, we have a special focus – we offer the first comprehensive overview of the implementation of Directive (EU) 2019/1 (the ECN+ Directive) in all EU Member States that have already transposed it or have published a draft national law. The Reports section is where you will find the analysis of the ECN+ implementation in 23 Member States, as well as a very useful summary of the status quo and trends in the transposition. Beyond this topic, in CoRe 3/2021 you can read articles on: killer acquisitions and other forms of anticompetitive collaborations with a case study on the pharma sector; the application of economic methodologies in quantifying sustainability benefits potentially stemming from an agreement, a merger, or State aid.

Read the open access overview and the special country reports on the implementation of the ECN+ Directive in:

Austria · Bulgaria · Croatia · Cyprus · Czech Republic · Denmark · Estonia · Finland · France · Germany · Hungary · Italy · Latvia · Lithuania · Luxembourg · Malta · Netherlands · Poland · Portugal · Slovak Republic · Slovenia · Spain · Sweden
