Industrial organisation (IO) theory and empirical research provides the analytical framework for the regulation of competition (mergers, abuse of dominance, and cartels) and for the regulation of specific sectors characterised by dominant firms including energy, transport, water and telecommunications. While a significant literature on IO topics exists in developed countries, such research is scarcer in developing countries like South Africa. This workshop is intended to support emerging research on competition and regulatory matters.
