Abstract

The paper explores the interaction between industrial policy and competition law, in particular merger control in Europe. It reflects on the tensions, actual and perceived, between these two policies and critically assesses the substantive and institutional solutions that have been proposed, in particular in the recent Franco-German Manifesto for a European industrial policy fit for the 21st Century.

Keywords: industrial policy, competition law & policy, national champions, merger control
