This survey has been undertaken in connection with a research project (The Cartel Project) that investigates various aspects of the criminalisation of cartel conduct in Australia. In section 1 of the Report we set out the background to cartel criminalisation in Australia (section 1.1) and explain the aims and components of The Cartel Project (section 1.2). We also set out why we decided to undertake this survey as part of The Cartel Project and, in particular, why we regard empirical evidence of public opinion on cartel criminalisation as relevant from various perspectives (section 1.3). The scope of the survey, as determined by the questions we were seeking to answer, is explained (section 1.4), and finally there is a note on the purpose and scope of this report (section 1.5).
