Abstract:The purpose of the research carried out in the framework of the thesis is to fill the gap by attempting to link the EU competition policy with the U.S. antitrust, provide a critical overview of the most important elements of the competition policy reforms in the European Union, trace the evolution of the EU competition policy traditions and central theories underpinning the EU competition rules, and, most importantly, carry out comparative analysis between the EU and U.S. competition policy, detect convergence or divergence, measure the degree of convergence, and account for relevant mechanisms triggering competition policy convergence in the EU. This brings up the main research question of the thesis: How substantial is the degree of convergence between the competition control models and competition law enforcement systems utilized in the European Union and in the United States?
