This is the introductory chapter to a 38-chapter book relating to two principal subjects: the decision of competition authorities to settle cartel cases, with a focus on the development of a cartel settlement regime in Europe; and the use by the European Commission of “commitments decisions” under Article 9 of Regulation 1/2003 to close non-cartel cases. The author discusses the various chapters of the book in detail and highlights continuities as well as points of contention.
