Globalization has been the most salient feature of competition law enforcement for the past two decades. Today there are more than one-hundred countries with competition law regimes almost all of which proscribe cartels. Unquestionably some of these enforcement agencies do little more than attend international conferences, but many have active enforcement agendas. The increase in the number of agencies has presented increased opportunities for inter-agency cooperation. (Few programs on competition law do not have a session devoted to international agency cooperation.) But the increase in the number of enforcement participants has also created opportunities for conflict.
