Whether competition law protects consumers, the market structure, or both, is the subject of an ongoing discussion in academia and practice. The traditional understanding of competition rules has been challenged by a more economic approach. Whereas the purpose and interpretation of competition law have always been controversial, today, there is no doubt about its capital: Brussels has proven to be a global center of competition law and policy, attracting experts from the entire world. Thus, the Flying Classroom could not be closer to recent developments in European and global competition law, than in the EU capital.

Language: English

In order to create a quality legal field, special attention should be paid to the planning of draft law activity, taking into account the strategic goals of state policies for the long-term prospect. In a federal state, for example, Russian Federation, strategically oriented legislative activity is impossible without the regular performance of comprehensive analysis of lawmaking activity and legislative enforcement, both on the federal level and in the constituent entities of the Federation. An efficient tool for achieving the tasks is the monitoring of legislation and the analysis of law enforcement practices (legal monitoring). It forms an integral part of the system of lawmaking, allowing constructing the whole legislative process on a transparent, fundamental legal basis. Legal monitoring has great value in the federal state, one where federal and regional legislation are applied simultaneously. Legal monitoring is presently required as a factor unifying the legislative and legal enforcement activities of bodies of power of Federation and its constituent entities, especially in the course of national project implementation. Over the past years, a passage has been made from a theoretical justification... [-]
