|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject will consider the development of modern thought about trade and competition that originated in the 18 th century. The development of ‘free trade’ and competition as the organising mechanisms of both domestic and international commerce will be traced through the 19 th and 20 th centuries to the present day. The evolution and spread of modern competition policy and law in key jurisdictions and regions will be examined, analysed and contextualised through global shifts in the political economy environment. The relatively recent spread of competition law to developing and small economies will be explained and the impact of new technologies on competition law will be discussed. Finally, the effects of globalisation of competition law and how it affects international legal practice in this field will be considered.
