Abstract

The European Commission has published early April 2008 its White Paper on damages actions for antitrust violations. The White Paper makes a number of important specific proposals with the aim to facilitate civil antitrust claims for damages in Europe that will certainly create a lot of discussions. What follows is a first appraisal of these proposals in light of their stated objectives: compensation of victims and increased deterrence.
