The idea of the European Union is not only related with political and economic unity but also requires unity in the field of law. Therefore in any part of the Union, there are numerous legal initiatives. As an example and also as an explanation, the Treaty of Rome, which is known as one of the founding documents of the European Union involves a myriad of regulations in lots of different fields and Competition is one of them. After some revisions, the Treaty of Rome was renamed as the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union by the Lisbon Treaty.
