     INVITED SPEAKERS:

     - Lisa Bernstein (University of Chicago)
     - Avinash Dixit (Princeton University)
     - Robert Gibbons (MIT)
     - Bentley MacLeod (Columbia University)

     WORKSHOP OBJECTIVE:

     This workshop aims to bring scholars together who have
     studied organizations and institutions that support
     economic activities if using the courts is not an option.
     The workshop will also provide a competition policy
     perspective that critically weighs the pros and cons of
     self-governance institutions against each other.

     SPECIFIC TOPICS (NON-EXCLUSIVE):

     - Under which conditions can private ordering replace
       public courts? What are the main benefits and the main
       costs associated with this substitution?
     - Should private institutions step in if the public court
       system fails? Who should set them up and who should pay
       for them?
     - What are the effects on private ordering if the quality
       of the legal system improves or decreases? What about the
       risk of crowding out?
     - How does the efficient private institution or
       organization that supports transactions depend on the
       characteristics of the transaction, the industry, or the
       country?
     - How can the efficiency of governance regimes be measured
       if both the market creation effect and the market
       shrinking effect that comes with private ordering are
       taken care of?
     - Can we formulate rules of thumb that help competition
       authorities and courts decide when the threat of
       collusion inherent in a self-governance mechanism
       outweighs its positive effects, or vice versa?
     - What can we learn from cases where private ordering is
       part of a regulated process, e.g. in industrial relations
       where trade unions are a substitute for labor courts, to
       some extent?

     SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE:

     - Maurits Barendrecht (Tilburg University)
     - Peter Cserne (Tilburg University)
     - Eric van Damme (Tilburg University)
