Abstract

Unitary European competition law is acknowledged to be complex, yet the common sharing of best practices, knowledge and the opportunities for future improvement and reform is constrained by interpretation and understanding. It is not simply the diversity of national languages among member states – but the differences in vocabulary within nations that can be found among people by sector, organisation, and according to whether they are those making competitive submissions or inviting them. There is a clear need to address and improve understanding by developing a unified language model, and how this might be done is discussed in this essay.
