Regulatory competition within Europe and internationally, operates in several fields with different outcomes. This book offers a comparative legal and economic analysis of corporate, securities and competition law, exploring the reasons behind such differences.

The book’s conceptual framework covers the most relevant drivers of competition, including legal actors’ incentives, channels of competition and governance design. It shows how the different drivers and institutional designs are shaping competitive interactions, drawing relevant conclusions for both general and field specific regulatory policy.

Providing a comparative analysis of regulatory competition in three legal fields, this book will be a valuable resource for researchers and academics in law, economics and political science, as well as policymakers – legislator, regulator, judiciary – at both national and European levels.
‘Dr Gabor’s book is an important contribution to the academic study of regulatory competition and to the practice of regulation in the European Union. It therefore deserves a wide readership among both academics and practitioners. It will stimulate debate and help in the search for constructive solutions to the challenges facing modern Europe.’
– Jonathan Faull, European Commission, Internal Market and Services, College of Europe, Brugge and Institute of European Studies, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium

‘Barbara Gabor’s masterful overview of regulatory competition issues as they relate to the European Union is a must read; political scientists, economists, and lawyers will find value in this comprehensive and thoughtful work by an able young scholar.’
– Daniel Rubinfeld, University of California, Berkeley, US
