In order to prevent collusion, EOSIO, like many other chains, keeps all on-chain transactions public. Further, it natively supports a constitution through Ricardian clauses and a multisig "admin" account that has various privileges if a supermajority of BPs agree on using it. As such, there are certain rules that participants agree when using the blokchain. For instance, on the EOS mainnet, there is a clause that one implicitly agrees on when using the voteproducer command:

...

I stipulate I have not and will not accept anything of value in exchange for these votes, on penalty of confiscation of these tokens, and other penalties.

...

Thus, this framework can be employed to reduce or prevent collusion, assuming this is possible. For further information about this, the governance section in the whitepaper may provide more details.


However, you also ask:

How can EOS prevent colluding to make it a more decentralized system?

I would note that collusion prevention is not necessarily conducive to creating a more decentralized system. For instance, Dan Larimer mentions:

True decentralization is free market competition among different colluding groups.
