Competition Advocacy: Time for a Rethink Symposium on Competition Law and Policy in Developing Countries

Evenett, Simon J. | January 1, 2006

This paper examines the conventional wisdom concerning competition advocacy, paying particular attention to the applicability of such wisdom to developing countries. The definition of competition advocacy, its evaluation, and the likelihood of its successful implementation are discussed in some detail. The paper concludes with a call for considerably more thought about what, hitherto, has been one of the relatively uncontroversial aspects of many competition authorities’ activities.
