Agriculture and Food
The research project, prepared In the context of the BRICS competition authorities' cooperation, aims to provide the first in-depth analysis of the regulation, from a competition policy perspective, of the food industry by the BRICS countries, and selected developed countries (European Union, United States).
The research project aims to exchange of information on the experience of the BRICS countries in suppressing anticompetitive practices in the digital economy: combating cartels of a new type, through examination and discussion of cases; consideration of transactions of economic concentration in the digital age; development of new mechanisms to combat anti-competitive practices, adapted to digital reality.
Cross-border cartels have long been a pressing issue for competition authorities and, arguably, constitute the most challenging type of anti-competitive behaviour due to complexity inherent in investigating and suppressing them.
Ecoantitrust is a comprehensive approach to analyzing and regulating digital platforms that uses analogies between natural and digital ecosystems. The BRICS International Competition Law and Policy Centre is developing the project together with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
