What the authors offer is a thoroughgoing analysis clearly demonstrating that, whatever economic path developing countries pursue, imposing Western-style antitrust regimes will engender uncertainty, chill economic behaviour, and foster an unhealthy climate for business. They employ the influential error-cost methodology to appraise the performance of competition policy and to show how such a policy creates irresolvable tensions in fragile economies with weak institutions - economies characterized by informal rules of business practice, long-standing symbiotic business-state relationships, and unpredictable state action. They mount a powerful critique of the arguments of neo-institutionalists (who fail to recognize the vulnerable nature of emerging market economies) and competition `advocates' (who presume to stand ready and vigilant to enforce competition policy on state entities). --

Whilst advances in biotechnology and information technology have undoubtedly resulted in better quality of life for mankind, they can also bring about global problems. The legal response to the challenges caused by the rapid progress of technological change has been slow and the question of how international human rights should be protected and promoted with respect to science and technology remains unexplored. The contributors to this book explore the political discourse and power relations of technological growth and human rights issues between the Global South and the Global North and uncover the different perspectives of both regions. They investigate the conflict between technology and human rights and the perpetuation of inequality and subjection of the South to the North. With emerging economies such as Brazil playing a major role in trade, investment and financial law, the book examines how human rights are affected in Southern countries and identifies significant challenges to reform in the areas of international law and policy.

"This book demonstrates the importance of true and fair competition to sustainable development and an effective marketplace, touching on issues of globalization, consumer welfare, cartels and monopolies, and trade liberalization. It provides an introduction to competition, and to competition law and policy in developing countries. It focuses on the practical problems faced in developing countries and the steps that have been and can be taken to overcome those problems. It is about anticompetitive practices as they occur in developing countries and the policies that governments and citizens can promote and implement to limit the impact of such practices." "The book will be of particular interest to consumer groups and NGOs, as well as to government officials, legislators, trade negotiators, and the judiciary. Educators, students, development professionals, and business groups will also find the book useful."--BOOK JACKET.

Since its inception in 2001, the International Competition Network (ICN) has achieved remarkable results. Currently uniting 114 competition authorities from both developed and developing countries, the ICN has contributed significantly to the harmonization and convergence of global procedural and substantive antitrust law and policy. The ICN substantially contributes to increasing international cooperation in the field of cartels and to a more uniform treatment of anticompetitive unilateral conduct by dominant companies. Moreover, the ICN has stimulated competition authorities to streamline procedures and build up capacity, resources, and knowledge to adequately review mergers in a multi-jurisdictional environment. Written by leading competition agency officials, private sector lawyers, and academics, this publication brings together essays on the origins, accomplishments, and aspirations of the ICN. The analytical and critical contributions offer valuable insights into the functioning of the ICN, its accomplishments, its key-success factors, the obstacles it has faced, and possible future directions. As such, this collection offers a wealth of information and insights for private practitioners and competition agency officials, as well as government officials and academics.
