Welcome

The Competition and Regulation European Summer School (CRESSE) has established itself as the top academic summer event in the areas of Competition and Regulation Policy in Europe. Top quality instruction and excellent organisation, with a good atmosphere in beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to participate in a high quality Conference explain the very good ratings given by the participants of the fourteen Summer Schools, that have been organised between 2006 and 2019. 



 
 
 

Who we are

CRESSE is a Network of academics and professionals, practicing in Competition or Regulatory Authorities, Consultancies and Legal Practices, with an interest in Competition Policy and Sectoral Regulation. It was initiated by Prof. Y. Katsoulacos in 2005. The specific format and content of the CRESSE Summer School and Annual Conference has been influenced by the suggestions and ideas of a large number of people. Special mention should be made of Prof. J. Harrington, Prof. M. Motta, Prof. P. Rey,  and Prof. D. Ulph.

The CRESSE Scientific Committee consists of Prof. J. Harrington, Prof. Y. Katsoulacos, Prof. L. Marx, Dr. P. Regibeau, Prof. P. Rey,  Prof. Th. Ross and Prof. D. Ulph.

 
 
 

Rationale and Objectives

Competition Policy and Sectoral (Network Industry) Regulation have undergone dramatic changes in the past two decades. This has been accompanied by an intellectually vibrant economic literature. Economists have developed new theories to characterize firm behavior and to assess which market contexts warrant government intervention – see for example Prof. D. Whinston (2011 CRESSE Keynote Speaker) “Lectures on Antitrust Economics”, MIT Press (2007) and Prof. M. Motta (CRESSE Lecturer and Member of the Scientific Committee, 2006-2010) “Competition Policy: Theory and Practice”, Cambridge University Press, 2004. Traditional views of which situations warrant intervention have changed substantially.

The economic approach has gained ground both in policy making and in case law, sometimes challenging conventional views. Also, following the liberalization of many network industries, Sectoral Regulation has been increasingly adopting Competition Policy approaches to assess market power.
