Leniency policies are seen as a revolution in contemporary anti-cartel law enforcement.

Unique to competition law, these policies are regarded as essential to detecting, punishing and deterring business collusion – conduct that subverts competition at national and global levels.

Featuring contributions from leading scholars, practitioners and enforcers from around the world, this book is a critique of the almost universal adoption and zealous defence of leniency by competition authorities. It charts the origins of and impetuses for the leniency movement, captures key insights from academic research and practical experience relating to the operation and effectiveness of leniency policies and examines leniency from the perspectives of corporate and individual applicants, advisers and authorities.

The book also explores debates surrounding the intersections between leniency and other crucial elements of the enforcement system such as compensation, compliance and criminalisation. The rich analysis in the book draws on the disciplines of law, regulation, economics, criminology and political science. It makes a substantial and distinctive contribution to the literature on a topic that is highly significant to a wide range of actors in the field of competition law and business regulation generally.
