About this event:
Professor Sokol's talk develops a richer model of cartels and cartel enforcement, moving beyond the neo-classical approach to examine both firm and individual incentives as well as the interplay between them. Sokol will provide new empirical evidence on cartel enforcement and the cartel leniency program in the United States based upon practitioner survey evidence. He also will provide an analysis of media coverage of US cartel enforcement from 1990-2009. Finally, he will suggest modifications to US cartel enforcement based on insights from finance, organizational theory and accounting academic literatures.
About the Competition Law in a Global Context Speaker Series
Convened by Dr. Ioannis Lianos (UCL), the “Competition law in a Global Context” Speaker Series aim to critically examine the evolution of competition law enfocement in several parts of the world. More than 100 jurisdictions have now developed competition law statutes and many actively enforce it. The series will delve into important issues of practical and theoretical importance for practitioners, academics and graduate students interested in the enforcement of competition law in foreign jurisdictions. Previous talks in the series included “US Antitrust Law under an Obama Administration: One year on” (http://antitrust-obama.eventbrite.com/ ) and "Competition Law in Latin America" (http://latin-america.eventbrite.com/)
The series forms part of UCL’s increasing engagement with the study of comparative competition law and global competition law enforcement. The Centre for Law and Economics (Public Policy Section) at UCL has signed a research partnership agreement with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and members of UCL faculty participate actively to the work of the International Competition Network (ICN).
