New Regulatory models

REG.2 : Setting a new agenda
Thursday, 08 October 2009, 11:00 - 12:30, Room B

Nearly all countries now have a regulatory authority to look after markets which are competitive to differing degrees. A wide array of tools has been developed, including market analyses and impact assessments, plus instruments such as number portability and mandated sharing of infrastructure. Are such tools appropriate in the next stage of market development?
KEY QUESTIONS: - Is the future more of the same or is there a Regulation 2.0? - How do we measure competition and can there ever be too much? - What is the most important tool for future regulation? - Is there an end-game, a way to withdraw from regulation?
