REVIEWING THE GLOBAL EXPERIENCE ON ECONOMIC REGULATION
– A forward
Le Meridien, Windsor Place, Janpath, New Delhi 110001,
CUTS International alongwith CUTS Institute for Regulation and Competition is organising the 2nd International Conference, ‘Reviewing the global experience on economic regulation – a forward looking perspective’ in New Delhi from April, 18-20, 2011.
The term ‘regulation’ is associated with such broad usage that its relevance is seen in almost all walks of life. It has, therefore, been classified into various types, one major class being ‘economic regulation’ or regulation that directly affects the number of firms operating in markets, the quantity transacted in each market and shares of participating firms in the transacted amount, and finally, the prices at which these transactions are carried out. While there is a fair bit of consensus on the definition of ‘economic regulation’ there is wide disagreement and confusion about the rationale for such regulation.
This conference would be a humble attempt to forge some agreement on the mentioned issue by putting on
display different approaches for rationalising and evaluating regulation as well as defining stakeholder participation in such regulation; and then inviting discussion and debate among students, experts and practitioners with varying perspectives from different parts of the world.
