About the Jevons Institute

The Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics at UCL (The Jevons Institute), set up in 2006, constitutes a policy forum and a meeting point between academia and practice with the aim to:

  • stimulate debate concerning the application of competition law and industry regulation to the marketplace; and
  • promote interaction among academic scholars in law and economics, policymakers and enforcement officials, the judiciary, practitioners and business leaders.

Our approach in this area of law and policy is based on a strong interaction between legal principles and analysis, and applied economic theory and empirics.

The Jevons Institute has been named after William Stanley Jevons, one of the foremost economists of the 19th Century and professor of political economy at UCL.

The Jevons Institute was founded by Visiting Professor Antonio Bavasso and Visiting Professor David S. Evans and operates within the Faculty of Laws at University College London.
It is directed by three Executive Directors: visiting professors Antonio Bavasso and David S. Evans and Ioannis Lianos, chair of global competition law and policy at UCL Laws.
