This webinar seeks to understand how international cooperation among competition authorities (particularly in developing countries) in times of crisis (e.g. 2008 financial crisis and 2019 COVID19) can be instrumental in the fight against cross-border cartels forming as a result of the crisis-related business activities. The book "Fighting Cross-Border Cartels: The Perspective of the Young and Small Competition Authorities" (March, 2020 by Hart Publishers) will serve as a basis for reflexion to explore how developing countries can effectively detect and sanction cartels that have cross border reach.
