Organization: IDB Research Department
Event: The Regulation of Public Utilities of the Future in Latin America
Submission Deadline: July 23, 2018
Description: The regulation of public utilities has been evolving across the world, and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is no exception. Privatization has often transformed public enterprises to private firms with monopoly power, and many lessons have been learned in regard to regulating such entities over the years. Those privatizations, though, have also included some forms of deregulation and liberalization in different segments of the markets involved. Increased opportunities for competition have been introduced in several instances, and technology has already been an important driver of change.
Eligibility: In this network project we seek to advance knowledge in these areas for Latin America and the Caribbean. As in other such network projects, this one will be an exercise in joint learning with several teams working across different countries and sectors and with the opportunity to share common methods and to exchange information on experiences and on ideas. The results of the project will be a series of papers that will serve as inputs to the 2020 IDB flagship publication Development in the Americas, which will be dedicated to infrastructure services. Interested research institutions should submit a proposal no later than July 23, 2018 using the web submission form that is provided in the Call for Proposals announcement. If you are unable to submit the form electronically, please send an e-mail to red@iadb.org. Proposing research institutions should be registered as Research Network members (contact Elton Mancilla at red@iadb.org) and should be based in the Latin American and Caribbean region. US and European institutions do not qualify as members of the Research Network. However, researchers from the United States and Europe can participate in research teams from proposing institutions.
