About the Organisation

Competition Commission of India (CCI) is a statutory body of the Government of India responsible for enforcing The Competition Act, 2002 throughout India and to prevent activities that have an appreciable adverse effect on competition in India. It was established on 14th October 2003.

About the Conference

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) will organize the 6th National Conference/Webinar on Economics of Competition Law on 5th March 2021 in New Delhi.

Objectives

This conference/webinar aims to:

  • Stimulate research and debate on contemporary issues in the field of the economics of competition law.
  • Develop a better understanding of competition issues relevant to the Indian context.
  • Draw inferences for implementation of competition law in India.

Eligibility

The conference/webinar targets economists including scholars, practitioners and competition agency officials with a keen interest in the economics of competition law and policy. Co-authored papers are allowed. However, one of the authors should be an Indian citizen and necessarily have at least a Master’s degree in Economics.

Submission of Papers

A 1000-word abstract of the paper including research questions, methodology and expected results along with one-page curriculum vitae and contact details should be submitted initially.

Authors of selected abstracts will then be invited to submit full original papers of not more than 5000 words.

Abstracts along with CV may be sent to [email protected]

Themes

The conference/webinar is expected to cover a wide range of related themes.

However, papers in the following themes are encouraged:

  • Market definition, measuring market power and abuse of dominance: Issues like empirical methods of defining markets, measuring market power, and assessment of exclusionary unilateral conduct etc. may be covered among others.
  • Vertical restraints and competition: Vertical restraints can have many pro-competitive as well as anticompetitive effects. Papers may explore areas such as resale price maintenance, assignment of exclusive territories or exclusive dealing, tying and bundling and circumstances under which these restrictions have anticompetitive effects.
  • Horizontal agreements and cartelization: Prohibition of collusive conduct of firms is a key component of competition law.
    Papers may explore issues such as the economics of collusion, information exchange, price signalling, facilitating factors for cartels, detecting and discouraging cartels etc.
  • Economics of platform markets and challenges for antitrust enforcement: New digital products and business models, as well as the special characteristics of digital markets, have created new challenges for enforcement and competition policy. Papers may explore new tools and techniques that the discipline of economics offers for assessing competition issues in platform markets.
  • Intellectual Property Rights and competition law: Competition law will be concerned not with the legitimate exercise of an IP right, but with efforts of the holders of this right to expand the scope, either to new products or beyond a certain time or by conditioning access to the right on restrictions. Papers may explore areas of recent concerns in the IP- competition law interface.
  • Price and non-price effects of mergers: Economic analysis is playing an increasingly important role in merger review. Papers may focus on recent developments in estimating the effects of mergers (merger simulation, diversion ratios, pricing pressure indices, etc.), innovation effects and welfare effects of mergers including vertical or conglomerate mergers, issues in the use of appropriate remedies, that is, adoption of structural and/or behavioral remedies.

Any other issues related to competition policy and law.

Fee Details

There is no conference/webinar fee.

Post-conference/webinar publication: Depending on the quality of submissions, some papers may be considered for publication by the CCI.

Financial support: Paper presenters at the Conference shall be provided financial support.
