Organizer

Concurrences Review + NYU School of Law

This year’s Conference puts a particular spotlight on Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – the BRICS countries. At a time of increasing nationalism in the developed world, how do these most dynamic developing economies balance the need for competition policy and open economies while also accommodating industrial policy and the pressure of globalized markets? Do the world’s mega-mergers hurt or help developing countries, and how well do these countries vet such mergers? And how can businesses in the developed world understand the lay-of-the-land as they try to compete in developing-country markets? These are among the questions that the experts will debate at the 2018 edition of the developing countries’ competition program, with a kick-off speech from Nobel-prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz. The program will feature not only Western experts but also enforcers, practitioners, jurists and academics from all of the BRICS countries and more.

Photos will be taken at the event; attendees agree for the organizer to use these photos unless otherwise required in writing.
