This paper elaborates on the desirability of creating an international network of competition advocacy NGO’s. It explicates the model of the American Antitrust Institute as one type of independent, non-profit competition advocacy organization, offering suggestions to others yet to be formed, recognizing that what works in the United States will not necessarily be appropriate in other nations. The first part describes the AAI model. The second discusses the need for competition advocacy NGO’s worldwide. A third section poses foreseeable questions and offers some responses. And the final section describes the AAI’s efforts to reach out to NGO’s in other nations to foster their growth.
