Evaluation of Competition Policy Rules and Institutions

Evaluation of Competition Policy Rules and Institutions

In this project, we start with an initial assessment of particular competiton policy rules and institutions from a law and economics perspective. From a law perspective, comparative analyses are especially important while an economics approach demands an econometric evaluation of the effects of certain rules or institutions on market competition. Subsequently to an identification of reform potential, we aim at deriving policy conclusions on how the respectives rules or institutions can be improved by explicitely taking the pespectives of both law and economics into account.
