The 2008 Annual Conference explored the boundaries of competition policy, and the appropriate balance between regulation and competition, both in general terms and using examples from particular sectors. The object of the conference was to use insights from leading economists, legal scholars and political scientists to understand where the application of competition policy is constrained or may need to be tempered. Similarly it sought to identify how other objectives may be affected by the application of competition policy.
Much of the Centre's work is devoted to analysing condition in which Competition Policy can flourish and improve welfare. This conference extended that perspective by identifying limits to competition policy, both intrinsically because of internal ambiguities, and in interaction with other social or economic objectives.
