Following previous discussion events on rail transport, we are now debating scope and frontier of sector specific and competition regulation in railways.
The discussion will be kicked-off with the following points:
- Is there any room for competition regulation in the railway sector?
- What should fall into competition regulation? What into sector specific regulation?
- What problems can arise from the unclear delimitation between competition regulation and sector specific regulation?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of competition and of sector specific regulation respectively? Advantages and disadvantages for whom?
- How do competition and sector specific regulation relate to the overall performance of a national railway system?
Keeping to one of FSR’s guiding principles, namely stakeholder involvement, this Forum will feature presentations from the representatives of the European Commission, Ministries, regulators, operators, international associations of stakeholders and academics.For more information please contact FSR.firstname.lastname@example.org
