Around the world cartel conduct is singled out as the most serious form of anti-competitive behaviour and the most challenging for legislators, competition authorities and businesses to address. The OECD has referred to cartels as ‘the supreme evil of antitrust.’ There are vigorous debates taking place in Australia and internationally about the scope and effectiveness of cartel laws, enforcement policies and sanctions. Taught by experts in the field from Australia and the United Kingdom, this subject explores these debates in depth and from the perspectives of the various stakeholders in the field. The subject draws on case studies and compares the approach and experience in the US, Australia, UK and the European Union. Given the international nature of this field of practice, this subject will be relevant both to Australian and international students, and will provide students with deep expertise in this specialised and demanding area of competition law and enforcement. This subject will feature guests who are leaders in the field from the profession and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
