ZEI Regional Integration Observer No. 2011/03

The third edition of the Regional Integration Observer (RIO) in 2011

The third edition of the Regional Integration Observer (RIO) in 2011 deals with the subject of regulation and competition. Articles analyze the significance of this topic within and beyond Europe. First, the theoretical basis and the scope of measures for sectors-specific-regulation are explained and then illustrated through different country cases. In this context, the opportunities for a common competition policy in Southeast Asia (ASEAN) are being discussed. Moreover, the role of regulation in the process of Chinese economic development and in the development of the electricity market in the South American Andean state Ecuador, are being observed. A short article addresses the problems linked with the introduction and the applicability of competition rules in the Common Market of the South (MERCOSUR). Finally, another contribution also deals with the current and future perspective for an improved competition and regulatory framework in North Africa against the background of the fundamental changes that have occurred in this region throughout the year 2011.   (Download)
