Intercompetition Law and Disciplinary Legal Research with Economic and Political Perspectives

Competition law research with us spans several areas – from cartels, to abuse of dominance and private enforcement of competition law. Our researchers' work is focused on the Centre for Competition Policy.

The research undertaken in the Centre for Competition Policy is multi-disciplinary, with members looking at legal problems through the lens of economic and political science perspectives. Its active seminar series meets extensively each academic year with presentations by centre members, other colleagues and external speakers. It also organises several conferences and workshops every year, with speakers from across the relevant disciplines within UEA and from other institutions in the United Kingdom and internationally.

Many of our PhD students in this area are examining questions from merger control to the criminalisation of cartels and energy regulation. Many have entered into  employment with us, as well as other University Law Schools across the United Kingdom.
