THIS BOOK WILL BE ARCHIVED ON OCTOBER 1, 2022, AS IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A NEW EDITION. Created as part of the UNODC’s Anti-Corruption Academic Initiative (ACAD), Global Corruption: Law, Theory & Practice is a key resource for lawyers, public officials, and business persons of tomorrow on anti-corruption laws and strategies. This book has been specifically created to make it easier for professors to offer a law school course on global corruption. The first chapter sets out the general context of global corruption: its nature and extent, and some views on its historical, social, economic and political dimensions. Each subsequent chapter sets out international standards and requirements in respect to combating corruption – mainly in the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and the OECD Bribery of Foreign Officials Convention (OECD Convention). The laws of the United States and United Kingdom are then set out as examples of how those Convention standards and requirements are met in two influential jurisdictions. Finally, the law of Canada is set out.
