      [From the Introduction]. Rather than setting out to look for evidence of Europeanization, this paper, therefore, seeks to identify the factors that were important in shaping both the timing and the form of the UK reform. However, it does this at the same time as acknowledging that much of the literature states that this was driven largely by the desire to introduce a greater compatibility between the UK policy and the EU regime. Taking as its starting-point the existing legal, economic and political literature on the UK competition policy reform, the paper begins by introducing the UK’s competition policy, and more specifically, the background to reform, the content of the Competition Act of 1998, and some post-‘98 developments. The second then looks first at factors that have been important in determining the timing of the reform; and then considers factors that have shaped its content. Finally, a brief conclusion suggests that recent UK reforms have been driven by two government agendas. The first is that of compatibility with the EU and the second is the creation of an effective, modernized competition policy.
