International Law and Competition Policy

International Law and Competition Policy

(p.121) Chapter 7 International Law and Competition Policy
Competition and the State

Paul B. Stephan

Stanford University Press

This chapter explores the concepts of territoriality, sovereign immunity, and act of state as used in international law and as applied to competition law conflicts. It focuses on U.S. practice because the United States has been the principal exporter of competition policy and thus has generated the most international conflicts. It argues that current trends in U.S. law bolster these traditional international law doctrines and thus reduce the likelihood of disagreements over competition policy. Whether these developments will bring us closer to an optimal international competition regime is more debatable.

Keywords:   international law, territoriality, sovereign immunity, act of state doctrine
