  • Bárbara Joana Almeida Pereira (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This work seeks to analyse the limitations of the antitrust policy in the fight against cartels in the European Union. Starting from the analysis of the antitrust objectives and the concept of cartel, as so its prohibition by the competition law, a reflection regarding the measures adopted by the antitrust authorities in the prevention of antitrust violations is conducted, and its efficiency in deterring unlawful behaviours evaluated. Furthermore, an analysis of different mechanisms that could be employed to extinguish cartel activity is performed, with the support of a thoroughly literature review.
