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.

The conference will bring together 14 experts from different fields to offer their perspectives on the system.
