Descriptif

This lecture sets out the fundamental principles and objectives for competition law and policy, and its importance for public procurement. It sets this examination within a discussion of the various legal frameworks seeking to prevent anti-competitive practices undermining the benefits of both open and public procurement markets. It then presents the current debate on the use of competition and procurement for protectionist purposes - promoting secondary or horizontal policy objectives - such as buy nationals or supporting disadvantaged communities. It concludes with an examination of the legality of such protectionist measures under the legal frameworks existing at the domestic and regional level,
including the European Union, as well as under the World Trade Organisation GATT and Government Procurement Agreement (GPA).
