Welcome to the Centre for Competition Policy
The Centre for Competition Policy at the University of East Anglia was established in 2004, with a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to fund a 10-year research programme. The Centre undertakes interdisciplinary research into competition policy, including market regulation, which has real-world policy relevance without compromising academic rigour.
"Institutions and Competition Policy", 6th & 7th June 2013
Always at the heart of competition policy, institutions have come under increased scrutiny in recent years. New agencies have been created in transition states, while established authorities in Europe have undergone change and reform. Curiously, the growing consensus on the principles and practice of competition policy has not been accompanied by a convergence on organizational form or legal frameworks. Bringing together economists, historians, legal scholars and political scientists, academics and practitioners, this conference assesses the importance of institutional design, looks at the impact of institutions, and investigates processes of organizational and legal change.
