Alison Jones is a Professor of Lat at King's College London. Alison is co-author of Jones and Sufrin's EU Competition Law: Text, Cases, and Materials (7th edn, OUP, 2019) and the author of a number of articles in journals and edited collections.
Alison has recently embarked on a research project examining how public procurement processes can be improved to prevent them from being undermined by either corruption (where a public official diverts a contract to a preferred bidder in return for a financial or other benefit), supplier collusion (where contractors rig, and coordinate their bids for public tenders (bid rigging)), or both.
A core aim of the work is to propose that these problems should be addressed by analysing public procurement, anti-corruption and competition policies together. This will help to achieve synergies and ensure that the policies do not contradict one another.
