About the product

The regulation of anti-competitive practices by private parties is an established aspect of economic regulation in national laws. By contrast, the linkage of competition issues to the concerns of investment liberalization in International Investment Agreements is a relatively recent phenomenon. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the principal issues arising out of the relationship between competition and investment, to undertake a review of existing competition related provisions and to offer policy options in this regard.
