Abstract

In the first decade of its existence the International Competition Network (ICN) has advanced to frontrunner position among international organizations that address competition policy. As the ICN looks to its next decade, and governmental belt-tightening forces most competition agencies to rethink resource allocation, a key question is whether the ICN’s success is attributable to the Network’s relevance and competence, or timing and luck? The ICN has reached the top by furthering international cooperation and coordination, influencing domestic policies, and building capacity of its members. Many of its very achievements, however, also pose the greatest risks for a free fall.

Keywords: International Competition Network, International organizations, Resource allocation, Competition agencies, Domestic policies, International cooperation and coordination
