What are the challenges to the prevention of transnational bribery by multinational corporations in international business transactions? This book examines two particular constraints operating on the regulation of transnational corruption in general and bribery in particular. Firstly, it explores the limits of international cooperation in the regulation of transnational corruption and highlights the disparities between the capacities of individual states to pursue adequate regulation. It also considers the role and progress of international bodies such as the OEDC and the response of selected domestic legal systems in tackling the problem. Secondly, the book examines the liability regime for corporations and again, highlights an unexpected shortcoming of multilateral policy in the administration and enforcement of international agreements. The book will be of value both to students and researchers with an interest in the regulation of transnational corruption as well as policy-makers and practitioners working in this area.
Classified as 'Research Essential' by Baker & Taylor YBP Library Services ’Many books are written about corruption. The difference here is the enormous scope and coverage, in terms of the many countries and cases covered. The book succeeds in conveying the important message that corruption is an international scourge and that combatting it requires global strategies and strong national integrity systems.’ Arthur Shacklock, Griffith University, Australia
