Maciej Bernatt: Populism and Antitrust: The Illiberal Influence of Populist Government on the Competition Law System (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2022)

Abstract: The rule of populist governments is challenging the foundations of competition law in unprecedented ways. In this comprehensive work, Maciej Bernatt analyses these challenges and describes how populist governments have influenced national and regional (EU) competition law systems. Using empirical findings from Poland and Hungary, Bernatt proposes a new theoretical framework that will allow the illiberal influence of populism on competition law systems to be better measured and understood.

Maciej Bernatt is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Warsaw School of Management. He is the director of the Centre of Antitrust and Regulatory Studies (CARS) and a head of the Department of European Economic Law. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Yearbook of Antitrust and Regulatory Studies and the director of ASCOLA Central Europe Chapter,
