This chapter examines developments since the fall of the Soviet Union. During this period, competition law has again become a major focus of attention on both the international and national levels. The number of states with competition laws has increased, as has the intensity of enforcement in many of them. This has generated increasing conflict, uncertainties and compliance costs; and, as a result, proposals for some form of global competition law cooperation have again become prominent and controversial. These problems have led to growing awareness of the limitations of the jurisdiction-based regime, but they have not yet led to fundamental changes in the jurisdictional system. The chapter examines these limitations and responses to them, including efforts to introduce competition law into the WTO and the creation of institutions and arrangements such as the International Competition Network that are designed to foster convergence among competition law systems.

Keywords:   jurisdictional system, convergence, globalization, limitations, international conflicts, compliance costs, International Competition Network, WTO, responses
