Political Economy Constraints in Developing Countries: A Research Symposium

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

A common complaint among comparative and international antitrust scholars is that the quantity of scholarship that focuses on developing and transition countries is rather sparse. A conference by the CUTS Competition, Regulation and Development Research Forum seeks to fill in this gap of scholarship. From March 22 to March 24, CUTS will be hosting a conference entitled “Political Economy Constraints in Developing Countries: A Research Symposium” at the Hotel Le Méridien New Delhi. Registration is available here.

Research papers cover experiences of following countries:

Africa:
Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe

Asia:
Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Pakistan,Sri Lanka

Latin America:
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Peru, Venezuela

Caribbean:
Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago

Central America:
El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama

Europe:
Belgium, Bulgaria, Malta, Russia, Serbia, Turkey

A list of speakers is available here.  My co-author will be presenting our paper "Technical Assistance for Law & Economics: An Empirical Analysis in Antitrust/Competition Policy."
