The Autonomy of sector-specific regulation – Is It still worth protecting? further thoughts on the parallel application of competition law and regulatory instruments

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Aleksander Stawicki, Center for Antitrust and Regulatory Studies has written on The Autonomy of sector-specific regulation – Is It still worth protecting? further thoughts on the parallel application of competition law and regulatory instruments.

ABSTRACT: This article sets out to contribute to the on-going discussion regarding the relationship between competition law and sector-specific regulation, as well as the parallel application of competition law and regulatory instruments. Thus, this article attempts to provide a systematic outline of arguments which are conclusive for the proposition that sector-specific regulation must remain fully autonomous, while taking a critical stance with respect to the views of both the Supreme Court and academic lawyers who advocate the supremacy of competition law.
