Centre for Research in Network Economics and Communications (CRNEC)

This center, located at the University of Auckland, studies "economic issues arising in network industries." Some of their expertise is general, but they also are knowledgeable in the telecommunications, electricity, transportation, and water industries. Of particular interest is their work on interconnection pricing policies, number portability effects, and congestion pricing. They also offer training courses (to non-economists) and "take an active interest in New Zealand's unique approach to economic regulation." Further information about CRNEC is located here, as are their working and policy discussion papers and a list of their staff.
