The Internationalization of Competition Policy

The Internationalization of Competition Policy

(p.302) 10 The Internationalization of Competition Policy
Comparative Competition Policy



Oxford University Press

This chapter examines two political factors contributing to the greater internationalization of competition policy: the political power of nation-states and business, and the influence of international organizations and inter-agency relations within states. The chapter begins with a brief conceptual map of key terms inherent in dealing with the internationalization of competition policy: internationalization;, regimes, and institutions. The notion of ‘internationalizing’ competition policy is intended to evoke a process that is propelled by, but goes beyond, globalization. The definitional gray area ‘regimes versus institutions’ is also central to the analysis. The concept of regimes is also used in the study of domestic public policy and regulation for a related but somewhat different set of reasons. The internationalization of competition policy is affected by the traditional characteristics of international politics where issues and judgements of relative power among states are present.
