About this book


This book reviews and presents antitrust law compliance programmes from different angles. These programmes have been increasingly implemented and refined by firms over recent years, and various aspects of this topic have been researched. The contributions in this book extend beyond the treatment of legal issues and show how lawyers, economists, psychologists, and business scholars can help design antitrust law compliance programmes more effectively and run them more efficiently.

“This is a very welcome publication. Anyone interested in compliance ought to study all of it and implement its valuable lessons. It is more reflective and considered than most competition law books and therefore deserves a very wide readership and study.” (Vincent J.G. Power, European Competition Law Review, Vol. 41 (1), 2020)

“The book successfully integrates the variety of views and succeeds in developing a set of common themes on CLCPs throughout the individual contributions. … Written accessibly, the book offers practitioners and policymakers useful guidance on the micro-determinants of effective competition law compliance. … This compilation of interdisciplinary work on CLCPs deserves a place on the shelf of all interested in aligning the decision-making and strategies of firms with the aims of competition policy.” (Willem H. Boshoff, World Competition, Vol. 40 (3), 2017)
