The Shape of Things to Come: Cartel Law in the Twenty-First Century

Show Summary Details


This chapter provides a summary of the main points of argument and themes of discussion and sets out some main conclusions regarding the present state of the subject and prospects for the future. There are thus retrospective and prospective reflections on the subject of cartel regulation, setting the European system in a broader globalised and international context. The conclusions are set within a framework of different disciplinary and professional perspectives (that of economists, regulators, lawyers and strategists, criminologists and penal experts). Finally, the large uncertainties of the subject are identified and a present and future research agenda is laid down.

Keywords: retrospective view; prospective view; uncertainties; globalisation; cartel regulation; European system
