UCL Laws Conference & Events Papers

Competition Law and Policy in Latin America

Thursday 23 September 2010

About this event:
This event was organised by the UCL Centre for Law and Economics (Public Policy Section).

It was divided in two parts. Part one provided a critical assessment of the enforcement of competition law in some key jurisdictions in Spanish-speaking Latin America focusing on cartel enforcement (in particular leniency policy), abuse of dominance, the intersection of competition law and regulation, merger control, private enforcement (including private actions for antitrust damages).

The second part discussed horizontal approaches, including convergence and harmonisation of competition laws across Latin America, the influence of European and US models of Competition law (substance and enforcement) and the development of specific Latin American models.
