Dr Peter Whelan publishes new book on Cartel Criminalisation with Oxford University Press

20 August 2014 |

Dr Peter Whelan, an Associate Professor in Law and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, has published a monograph on the topic of cartel criminalisation with Oxford University Press.

The monograph is entitled The Criminalization of European Cartel Enforcement: Theoretical, Legal, and Practical Challenges and was published as part of the prestigious ‘Studies in European Law’ series.

Dr Whelan’s book is the first monograph-length study of the challenges inherent in criminalising cartel activity (e.g., price-fixing between competitors) in the European Union. Specifically, it provides detailed analysis of the theoretical, legal, and practical difficulties facing European antitrust criminalisation and examines the extent to which the problematic nature of antitrust criminalisation can be overcome in practice.

Some of the research underpinning the monograph was recently nominated for an Antitrust Writing Award 2014 by the Institute of Competition Law, which is based in New York.

Dr Whelan’s book has been published in Oxford and in New York and more details can be found about it by clicking here.
