This thesis seeks to undertake a critical investigation of the process and substance of decision-making by the European Commission under Article 85 Treaty of Rome 1957. The study evaluates the Commission's definition and characterisation of antitrust and the impact of this classification on both the nature, scope and use of enforcement powers and defence rights and on fundamental legal principles. The factors influencing this characterisation are considered. Special attention is paid to the effect of political and pragmatic goals on decision-making.
