Produktbeschreibung

About the work:


“For the global economy, corruption is dangerous. The consequence is economic decay, not development. And that’s why corruption demands a truly global response – one that knows no limits on collaboration.” (so the US Attorney General Eric H. Holder at the OECD in May 2010). The fight against corruption and bribery is backed by numerous global and regional agreements and conventions, supplemented by national legislation and practice, such as the Con-vention of the OECD on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (1997), the UN Convention against Corruption (2005), the Inter-American Convention against Cor-ruption ( 1997, the Criminal Law Convention on Corruption of the Council of Europe (2002), the Afri-can Union Convention on Prevent-ing and Combating Corruption (2006) and many more. Although most countries use their best en-deavours to reduce corruption within their jurisdiction, the effects of the measures taken still vary from country to country. This book undertakes the task of giving a compact overview on the legal framework and the practice of im-plementation in more than 150 countries worldwide, based on a uniform questionnaire. The reports of about 50 countries with the highest turnover in foreign trade are provided in print, a CD-ROM with the unprinted reports is included in the book.


Pros at a glance:

  • Both compact and comprehensive
  • Thanks to the uniform questionnaire the reports are easy to access and compare
  • Focus is laid on practice


Content:


The book and the CD-ROM cover 153 countries worldwide focussing on the following nine questions:

 

  • What is the ceiling beyond which advantages granted to public officials in the context of contractual negotiations become impermissible? What is commonly considered to be a socially acceptable and legally unproblematic advantage?
  • Who qualifies as a public official? Are government-controlled enterprises also included?
  • Does culpability arise only in cases in which a public official breaches his official duties, or can there be culpability also in cases in which a public official obtains any advantage in connection with a permissible official act?
  • What is the ceiling beyond which advantages granted to private sector business associates in the con-text of contractual negotiations become impermissible? What is commonly considered to be a socially acceptable and legally unproblematic advantage?
  • How can differences between the answers to Question 1 and 4 (benefits obtained by public officials/private sector business associates) be summarized?
  • Many advantages be granted to a potential (in the absence of contractual negotiations) public or private sector business associate? (So-called “priming the pump”).
  • Do corruption regulations apply solely to domestic businesses or also to foreign business entities?
  • Can legal entities be liable for prosecution? If not, what other possible sanctions might be imposed in a business (forfeiture/monetary fine/confiscation of profits/barring of contract awards)?
  • Can officials of a business also be held personally liable for criminal penalties or monetary fines?
