The WEA Online Conferences format, designed by Edward Fullbrook and Grazia Ietto-Gillies, makes full use of the digital technologies in the pursuit of the commitments included in the World Economics Association Manifesto: plurality, competence, reality and relevance, diversity, openness, outreach, ethical conduct, and global democracy. The WEA On-line Conferences seek to also engage graduate and undergraduate students considering: (a) the variety of theoretical perspectives; (b) the range of human activities and issues which fall within the broad domain of economics; and (c) the study of the world’s diverse economies.
The current WEA Conference Public Law and Economics: Economic Regulation and Competition Policies aims to:
(i) discuss how sector regulators and competition authorities are interacting post-crises and how the economic analysis of law can help countries reach better regulation and competition policies;
(ii) contribute with practical and theoretical references on the limits of economic power and forms of state intervention;
(iii) deal with the uncertainties and challenges of the digital economy;
(iv) gather relevant case studies and
(v) identify new trends in Law and Economics that have arisen post-crises.
