The UK’s leading centre of interdisciplinary expertise
CCP is a leading centre of independent expertise in all aspects of competition and economic regulation policy. We provide an academic output and a forum for debate; and policy-relevant findings for governments, authorities, private practitioners and the general public. We explore competition and regulatory policy from the perspective of economics, law, business and political science. By applying each of these disciplines both individually and together we can achieve real-world policy relevance without compromising academic rigour.
The majority of CCP’s research maps onto very significant policy and legislative developments as they occur, and applies an integrated [interdisciplinary] approach to studying competition policy. CCP has been in the vanguard of integrating the debate, having from its inception combined economics, law and political science.
Policy and Practice
CCP has contributed to the debate around the regulated sectors in our research projects. We have responded to many consultations from the Financial Conduct Authority, Monitor, Ofcom, Ofgem, and Ofwat
