Cartels are generally recognised as the most serious violation of competition law. The Chapter, new to the 4th ed of the Text, explains the nature of cartels and their historical importance to European industry, before going on to explain the increasingly hostile attitude of competition law enforcement authorities and the tools used to detect and punish cartel activity.
