    Project: Research

    Project Description

    This project aims to develop a theoretical model of what makes business comply with the law, and what undermines compliance. The project will describe, evaluate and explain what impact ACCC enforcement action against business has had on business compliance with, and ethical commitment to competition and consumer protection law using qualative interviews, case studies and a survey of the largest Australian businesses. It will go on to re-think what this tells us about the nature of law in an era of proliferation of regulation, and the capacity of law to achieve ethical commitment on social justice goals in a democratically legitimate way.
