Access from EThOS:
This thesis analyses antitrust federalism in the US and the EC from a comparative perspective. It conducts such analysis in two pillars: First relations between the competition laws of different levels (federal and state levels in the US and Community and national levels in the EC) and second, relations between the competition authorities of different levels in these polities. The thesis aims to initiate a communication and mutual education process between the legal and political science literatures from this perspective. On the one hand, the thesis criticises the legal literature which employs regulatory competition models arguing that these models do not reflect the complexities of modern multi-level polities. In order to inform the legal literature, the thesis critically reviews policy network models and appoints the Dutch network management model for the analysis of relations between the competition authorities.
