Competition and Regulatory Policy

Centre for Competition and Regulatory Policy

Welcome to the Centre for Competition & Regulatory Policy.

CCRP is a research-oriented centre that brings together academics and practitioners working in the areas of competition policy and economic regulation. The Centre was established in June 2005 with the aim to develop and disseminate research on the functioning of regulated and non- regulated markets. The work covers a wide range of relevant topics in competition and regulation as well as on themes in the broader sphere of industrial organization, financial economics, behavioural economics etc. During the last 16 years, the CCRP has organised regular bi-annual research workshops, special policy event days and more recently annual competition policy roundtables.

Recent Collaboration Activities

Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR) London School of Economics

January 2019

CCRP is delighted to announce the commencement of its academic collaboration with the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation at the LSE organising bi-annual Round Tables with the hosting alternating between the two institutions.

CARR is an interdisciplinary research centre; its core intellectual work focuses on the organisational and institutional settings for risk management and regulatory practices. In that sense the work of the two centres is complementary as CCRP’s core focus is the economic analysis of competition and regulatory policy. The director of CARR is Professor Martin Lodge. The first joint Roundtable took place in 14th March 2019 and was hosted at City.
