The papers and publication in this line of resarch have one of two primary objectives:  The papers on the causes of competition law and policy supplement the work on diffusion by examining in greater depth the political-economy of competition law adoption and reform in particular developing countries, focusing on proper names and relaxign the implicit assumption of the diffusion analyses that the development of competition regimes in developing countries has a common causal logic and hence a single explanation.  The papers on the consequences of competition law and policy take a more consciously comparative approach to understand the conditions under which competition law and policy in developing countries is more or less successful..
