The Centre for Competition Law and Economics, newly established within the Department of Economics with support from the South African Competition Commission, is already active on the research front. From 1 October, Dr Thomas Fagart (left in picture) joined the Department as a post-doctoral researcher in the Centre for Competition Law and Economics. He was recently awarded the Aguirre-Basualdo Award from the chancellery of Paris Universities, a prestigious French prize awarded to a PhD dissertation in economics. Thomas completed his PhD in 2016 at the Paris School of Economics, working on the role of irreversibility of investment in competition (click here to read the abstract). In this work, Dr Fagart focused on topics such as pre-emption, uncertainty, environmental impacts of investment, and collusion. He joins a number of other academics at the Centre who are currently researching various issues relating to collusion.
