This article explores the revival of fairness as the lodestar of EU competition enforcement. It considers the theory and evolving discourse of fairness, then identifies and evaluates examples of fairness-oriented enforcement activity. Concluding that fairness represents a distinct development from the ‘hipster antitrust’ movement, the article suggests reasons to explain the shift, including a need to rehabilitate the social market economy in an age of market-scepticism, and to facilitate the progressive expansion of competition law to address modern market failures.
