European "Class" Action: British and Italian Points of View in Evolving Scenarios
The article tackles the state-of-play of the European debate with respect to the representative action as form of enhanced antitrust private enforcement. First it takes into consideration the US precedent. Then it outlines the current debate at European level (White Paper), both on the basis of the British experience and of the Italian 'expectations' of introducing such a tool of consumer and citizen defence vis à vis abuses and collusive agreements carried out by national or multinational undertakings.
