Show Summary Details


In 2010, as part of the Global Administrative Law (GAL) Competition Project, teams were selected to draft work describing the institutional design of their country or jurisdiction, identifying the mandate of the competition authority therein, the norms embedded in the system for both rights of defence and institutional performance, and the trade-offs made. This volume is the result of that project. This introductory chapter provides an overview of the major cross-cutting themes in the other chapters, including major points of convergence and divergence, as well as the major normative issues relating to institutional design and decision-making processes across the developed and developing world. It provides brief summaries of the studies of the competition law systems of various nations. It is divided into the four parts addressed by each study: institutional structure; mandate of the competition authority; due process norms in case-by-case decision-making; and institutional performance norms. It also comments on the new or consolidated competition law regimes in India and Brazil.
