Call for Papers: XV Annual Conference – Latin American and Iberian Law and Economics Association (ALACDE)

La próxima edición de la Conferencia Anual de la Asociación Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Derecho y Economía (ALACDE) tendrá lugar el 3 y 4 de Agosto de 2011 en la ciudad de Bogotá, Colombia. La convocatoria para presentar propuestas de ensayos en “derecho y economía” fija el plazo de entrega para el próximo 25 de Abril.

Claramente uno de los enfoques sobre los cuales pueden versar los ensayos es el derecho de la competencia. Si revisan la historia de los premios que han sido otorgados en ediciones anteriores del evento, podrán ver que varios versaron sobre dicha área del derecho. Es más, en la última edición del “Premio Microsoft de Investigación en Derecho y Economía Robert D. Cooter” fue otorgado a Carlos Pablo Márquez por el paper “Exploitative Excessive Pricing Policy in Emerging Economies: The case of South American Economies”.

Abajo transcribo los detalles de la convoca:
