On 22nd of July the BRICS Competition Law and Policy Centre has organised a webinar that 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) written by the Dr Pierre Horna, Legal Affairs Officer, UNCTAD's Competition and Consumer Policies Branch served as a basis for reflexion to explore how developing countries can effectively detect and sanction cartels that have cross border reach.

Combatting Cross-Border Cartels: Empirical Study
The second edition of the Study accumulates experience of 50 competition authorities world-wide. More attention needs to be paid to the challenges the competition authorities face in fighting cross-border cartels. It is also important to elaborate common understanding on ways to overcome those challenges. The BRCIS Centre continues the research and deeply dives into the experience of both developed and developing countries related to cross-border cartel enforcement.
