The paper focuses on two recent advances in the antitrust approach to horizontal agreements. First, the so-called leniency programs are extensively assessed. Leniency programs not only help competition authorities in their ex-post investigation of collusive behaviour but are, above all, forceful instruments of ex-ante deterrence. Second, facilitating practices are analysed to show how they can help overcome an intrinsic tension between the economic and the legal notions of collusive behaviour.

Abstract

The paper focuses on two recent advances in the antitrust approach to horizontal agreements. First, the so-called leniency programs are extensively assessed. Leniency programs not only help competition authorities in their ex-post investigation of collusive behaviour but are, above all, forceful instruments of ex-ante deterrence. Second, facilitating practices are analysed to show how they can help overcome an intrinsic tension between the economic and the legal notions of collusive behaviour.
