Survey of Practitioners on the Deterrent Effects of EU Competition Enforcement

Lear, in partnership with Verian (formerly Kantar Public), has been selected by the European Commission to carry out a study on the extent and determinants of the deterrent effects of EU competition policy in the area of cartel and merger control as well as other antitrust enforcement. A correct measurement of the deterrent effects of EU competition policy enforcement is crucial for determining the overall impact of enforcement, together with the direct effect of competition policy interventions.

The study will rely primarily on surveys of companies and their legal advisers on the impact of competition policy interventions on company behaviour. Survey evidence will be complemented by interviews with competition policy experts and a literature review.
