Fellowship to Research Competition Issues in New Zealand for Academics

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

New Zealand is one of the world’s most open economies and has among the fewest regulatory barriers of any country.  Because of New Zealand's trade dynamism and the small size of its economy (with some highly concentrated industries as a result), there are a number of interesting antitrust/competition policy related issues in the New Zealand context.

The New Zealand Institute for the Study of Competition and Regulation (ISCR) invites applications from academics for the S T Lee Research Fellowship. ISCR’s research is undertaken by a specially created academic unit based at Victoria University of Wellington’s Rutherford House campus in downtown Wellington, New Zealand.  Spending three months in New Zealand should be a dream both in terms of exploring a beautiful country and opportunities for great research and collaboration with some of the country’s top competition experts.

In looking for materials to use in my comparative and international antitrust law and economics seminar, I recently had a chance to email with one of New Zealand's top competition practitioners, Peter Hinton.  Peter heads the competition practice at Simpson Grierson.  I gather from Peter that there are a number of interesting cases and industries worthy of study (not so subtle hint to my students looking for topics for their research papers).
