Chair for Industrial Organization, Regulation and Antitrust, VWL I, of the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen
- May 27-28, 2010
- Workshop on Effective Competition in Network Industries
- Gie??en, University of Gie??en, Alexander von Humbold Haus, Germany
- Over the past two decades, vertically integrated network industries have undergone a process of privatization, liberalization, and deregulation. The central objective of privatizing the formerly state-owned national energy, telecommunications, and rail industries was to make them more efficient and to establish effective competition in these industries.In the workshop we aim at discussing both the meaning of the concept of effective competition as well as ways for its implementation in particular regulatory cases. Topics of interest include approaches to measure the intensity of competition as well as the trade-off between static and dynamic efficiency. A further topic concerns the relation between competition policy and sector specific regulation and, in particular, how far concepts from the former area apply to the latter.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
