UNCTAD also supported Russia’s initiative to for a research Working Group to study differentiated instrumental enforcement for the purposes of market analysis  


The 10th meeting of the Research Partnership Platform took place during the 18th session of UNCTAD Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Competition Law and Policy in Geneva (Switzerland).


UNCTAD Research Partnership Platform unites representatives of academic community who focus on competition policy. At its annual meetings, researchers give reports on the most interesting research projects.


Alexei Ivanov, Director of the Institute of Law and Development, Higher School of Economics – Skolkovo, was a speaker at the panel discussion on regulating digital markets in the interests of developing economies, consumers and local communities. He described a recently completed project of the Institute of Law and Development on analyzing the law and enforcement practices of EAEU member-states and the Eurasian Economic Union on holding liable and relieving from liability for violating the antimonopoly law.  


In this project, scholars not only performed a comprehensive analysis of the law and enforcement of EAEU and EEC, but gave result-oriented recommendations based in the best foreign practices for the purposes of further development of the law of the Union and its member-states.


Irina Knyazeva, a professor at the Siberian Institute of Management – a branch of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, made a report on “Recommendations on institutionalizing instrumental changes for market analysis”.


She pointed out that the established approaches to preliminary analysis of markets, market structures and conduct of market agents on them, formalized in the concept of “relevant market” of UNCTAD Model Law on Competition, require modification and transformation under the conditions of broad digitalization of markets, dynamic expansion of platform interaction, emerging network effects and algorythmization of market procedures.


Irina Knyazeva’s initiative to form a Working Group that will study differentiated instrumental enforcement for the purposes of market analysis, нашла generated interest from the academic community.


Head of FAS Department for International Economic Cooperation, Lesya Davydova, commented:  “Annual meetings of UNCTAD Research Partnership Platform are important events, where the most important academic projects on competition policy are discussed. We are glad that this year two our scholars presented their projects at this event. FAS is ready to continue supporting Russian experts in their efforts to advance their projects at UNCTAD”.
