New Competition Jurisdictions - Shaping Policies and Building Institutions

Richard Whish, Christopher Townley

‘If you’re involved, either academically or professionally with cross-border competition law, this copiously footnoted book with its useful lists of legal tables will acquaint you with the latest thinking in this area, carefully researched.’ – Phillip Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine

‘The most thoughtful collection available of insights into the challenges facing new competition jurisdictions. Whish and Townley have brought together experts on approaches global, comparative and local, combined with fresh inter-disciplinary insights. By combining law, economics and political economy, what emerges are pointed commentaries, and a rich source of principles and pragmatism. This book will guide the creators and enforcers of new competition law regimes.’ – Philip Marsden, Director, British Institute of International and Comparative Law, and OFT Board Member

‘This is a wonderful volume filled with good ideas. It evolves from the Sixth Conference of ASCOLA, the world association of competition law professors, which asked a group of young scholars how new competition law systems can be made more effective, and challenged the conference participants to interrogate the ideas. The resulting book is an admirable collection of insightful papers and commentary. For all who are interested in advancing younger competition law systems and their supporting academic communities, this volume must be read.’ – Eleanor Fox, New York University School of Law, US
