Network industries are caught between competition and regulation. To perform adequately, vital infrastructures (such as energy, water, telecom, post, railways, aviation, and transport) need to carefully balance private interests and public values, economic efficiency considerations with social service obligations, and pressures for further liberalization with the need to regulate monopolistic networks. At the same time significant innovations – notably in the field of ICT – are taking place that offer new opportunities and impediments for infrastructure operations and governance. Exploring this balance between competition and regulation in network industries provides a fascinating field of research that challenges politics and business alike.
