Comparative Analysis Of Antitrust Policy Against Collusion In Some Transition Economies: Challenges For Effectiveness

Andrey V. Makarov (National Research University Higher School of Economics) offers a Comparative Analysis Of Antitrust Policy Against Collusion In Some Transition Economies: Challenges For Effectiveness.

ABSTRACT:   This article focuses on the development of antitrust policy in transition economies in the context of preventing explicit and tacit collusion. Experience of BRICS, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and CEE countries (Bulgaria, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia) in the creation of antitrust institutions was analyzed, including both legislation and enforcement practice.
