Professor William Kovacic (Coordinator)
While regulation is a well-established discipline, relatively little academic attention has been dedicated to the challenges facing and dynamics influencing regulatory and enforcement agencies. The global acceptance of competition law as an element of economic policy is a remarkable modern development. Today nearly 120 jurisdictions have competition laws, and 90 of these are 30 years old or less. Using rigorous theoretical frameworks as well as extensive practical examples, the subject will draw upon the experience of both older and newer regulatory regimes to examine the doctrinal and institutional determinants of effective regulatory and enforcement performance. The subject will explore approaches that economic agencies such as competition authorities can take to improve their own performances and will identify considerations that should be accounted for in the design of regulatory and enforcement systems. Taught by a world-leading authority on the design and performance of competition authorities, this subject will use the example of competition law to consider what it means to be an “effective” economic regulatory or enforcement agency.
