OECD Journal: Competition Law and Policy (Discontinued with Volume 2010 Issue 3)

Drawing on the best of the recent work done for and by the OECD Committee on Competition Law and Policy, articles provide insight into the thinking of competition law enforcers, and focus on the practical application of competition law and policy.

Here's what Robert Pitofsky, Chairman of the US Federal Trade Commission said about this journal when it was launched: "Global competition is the wave of the future, and comparative analysis of the laws and practices of various members of the worldwide community of nations is a necessary corollary. This new OECD Journal of Competition Law and Policy, compiled from OECD Round Table discussions, summaries of recent developments, and articles on topics of special interest, will introduce regulators, practitioners, and scholars to different regulatory approaches around the world and will allow us to consider in a more informed way the strengths and weaknesses of our own systems."
