Professor Dr Justus Haucap – 2017 Friedlander Visiting Scholar
LEANZ is delighted to welcome Professor Dr Justus Haucap to New Zealand in March as the 2017 Friedlander Visiting Scholar. Professor Haucap is the director of the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics (DICE) at Heinrich-Heine-University of Düsseldorf. He is a former Chair of the German Monopolies Commission, and is currently the Acting Vice-Chair of the Federal Networks Agency’s Council of Scientific Advisors.
Professor Haucap brings a wealth of experience in the application of research-based economics to competition and regulatory issues in a wide range of sectors, including in New Zealand where he once worked at Treasury. While in New Zealand in March, Professor Haucap will be presenting seminars to LEANZ, as well as numerous public and private presentations to a range of public sector organisations and academic institutions.
LEANZ is extremely grateful to Sir Michael Friedlander and the Friedlander Foundation for their generosity in making Professor Haucap’s visit possible.
