Around the world cartel conduct is singled out as the most serious form of anti-competitive behaviour and the most challenging for legislators, enforcers and business leaders to address. There are vigorous debates taking place internationally about the scope and effectiveness of anti-cartel laws, enforcement policies and sanctions. Taught by two of Australia’s experts in this field and the authors of its leading text, this subject explores these debates by taking Australian anti-cartel law and enforcement experience as the starting point and drawing on comparisons with other key jurisdictions, including the United States, the European Union, Canada and New Zealand. With the benefit of this cross-jurisdictional coverage and with a focus on critical analysis of policy arguments and practical implications, the subject will provide students with deep expertise in this specialised and demanding area of competition law and policy.
