Legal traditions and competition policy

  • Lee, Cassey

The relationship between legal tradition and competition policy is a multidimensional and complex one.

This issue is further complicated by institutional variations in the structures and processes of competition law enforcement. Preliminary quantitative analysis based on very limited variables and data indicate that legal tradition may have very limited effects on competition law.
