Competition policy and regulation has relatively clearly defined goals, including the enhancement of consumer welfare and the pursuit of market efficiency. In the current hyper-politicized environment, the challenge for competition authorities is how to pursue these goals while navigating political pressures and public sentiments that have the capacity to influence competition policy and enforcement decisions.
The annual Chatham House Competition Policy conference will assess how thinking on antitrust and market regulation is being reshaped in the prevailing political context, nationally and internationally, and amid the influence of non-competition factors, including industrial policy and trade objectives.
