Morten Hviid is the Director of the ESRC Centre for Competition Policy (since August 2011) as well as one of its founding members. He joined UEA Law School in September 2004. Prior to that he held posts in the Economics Departments at University of Copenhagen and University of Warwick and in the School of Economic and Social Studies, University of East Anglia.
Although trained as an economist, Mortens interest in law is long-standing and he has published in both fields, including papers in Economic Journal, European Competition Journal, European Law Review, International Journal of Industrial Organization, Journal of Industrial Econopmics, Journal of Law and Economics, Oxford Journal of Legal Studies and World Competition. Morten researches in the areas of competition law, contract law and tort law. Currently his research focuses on private enforcement of competition law and practices which facilitate collusive behaviour.
He has acted as an advisor to the Office of Fair Trading, the Department of Constitutional Affairs (now Ministry of Justice) and Ofcom. He is a former editor of the Journal of Industrial Economics and associate editor of the International Journal of Industrial Organization. He is also a former member of the Executive Committee of the European Association for Research in Industrial Economics (EARIE).
His current teaching includes Theory of Competition Markets on the LLM Programme.
He has supervised more than 30 doctoral students and is willing to supervise in all areas of competition law, with a particularly interest in private enforcement of competition law.
