Economic Characteristics of Developing Jurisdictions contributes to the ongoing debate over what type of competition law and policy is most suitable for developing jurisdictions. Concluding that one competition model does not fit all socio-economic contexts, the book frames an alternative vision of competition rules for developing nations.

A number of different factors that influence the implementation of competition law in developing countries are analyzed, such as the content and goals of such laws, the institutional features, and the political, ideological and legal conditions that must complement law and policy.

Experts in the fields of development economics and competition law discuss the key economic features that characterize most developing jurisdictions, determine how these unique characteristics influence law and policy and define how this must translate into competition law. Through this interdisciplinary exploration, the book illustrates how unique characteristics of developing jurisdictions matter when enforcing competition law.

Scholars interested in development economics and law and development will find this an informative addition to the discussion surrounding competition law in developed and developing countries. Practitioners and policy makers will find practical insight into how traditional approaches to designing competition law must be revised for the future.
