Competition Laws, Globalization and Legal Pluralism

China's Experience

By Qianlan Wu

Building upon a theoretical framework and empirical research, this book provides a thought-provoking analysis of the interests, strategies, and challenges that China has faced in developing its anti-monopoly law in the context of economic globalization. Divided in three sections, Part I reviews the directions of convergence of global competition law. Part II provides a contextual analysis of China's market governance and its strategic interests. Part III examines the latest enforcement of the anti-monopoly law by focusing on the interactions between global actors and China, the relationships between Chinese competition and sectoral regulators, and the enforcement of international competition laws and soft law norms in the Chinese context. The book is one of the first to provide a critical understanding of China's experience as a new competition regulator, set against the background of the plural sources of global competition laws.
