2017 Special Project

Amplifying the impact of enforcement: Proactive outreach strategies for deterrence

Deterrence of anti-competitive practices is a fundamental part of the mission of a competition authority. Communication and outreach is an essential element of a competition agency’s deterrence agenda. How can competition agencies reach out and engage stakeholders to better communicate their enforcement activity? What communications tools and strategies do competition authorities have at their disposal to promote deterrence within their jurisdictions? What are their limitations, legal or otherwise? What is the role of public and private stakeholders?

At the 2017 Annual Conference, conference attendees will have the opportunity to discuss strategies and experiences from their home jurisdictions and discuss international good practice.
