The course is designed to put the newly emerging issues of regulation and competition in a development and global context, and provides comprehensive training in the theoretical underpinnings of competition and regulation as they may be applied to developing and transitional economies, and tools and technical skills to assess critical competition and regulatory problems faced by them. The programme takes a multi-disciplinary approach towards regulation and competition policy, drawing on modules from both IDPM and the School of Law.
