Based at the University of East Anglia, the Centre for Competition Policy incorporates economic, legal, management, political science and sociological perspectives to produce inter-disciplinary research into competition policy and regulation that has real-world policy relevance, without compromising academic rigour.
Members include academic staff, researchers and PhD students drawn from the School of Economics, UEA Law School, Norwich Business School and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies. All have a wide range of knowledge and interest within the field of competition policy and regulation, and maintain the centre’s founding belief that a properly regulated, competitive market can provide consumers with the products they want at the best possible prices.
