This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the Treaty of Rome, which established the foundations of competition policy in Europe. It then presents an overview of the subsequent chapters. Fifty years of competition policy in Europe is the story of a success, showing resiliency and capacity of self-reform. Competition policy has become central in the European Union, with the authority of the European Commission firmly established and with an increasingly international leadership role.
