For this seminar, we have a look at two recent contributions to the question of how to assess the performance of competition agencies: the OECD study is quite wide-ranging but it is used by several NCAs to benchmark their performance. Bill Kovacic is a former commissioner of the FTC and has extensive experience using various assessment methods. The chapter by Lodge and Wegrich gives a wider perspective of ‘regulation inside government’ – see if it adds perspectives to the other two papers.
