Globalisation has opened new avenues to corruption. Corrupt practices are proliferating not only within national borders but across different countries. Despite many national and international anti-corruption bodies and strategies, corruption far from being eradicated. There is an urgent global demand for a better understanding of corruption as a phenomenon and a thorough assessment of the existing regulatory remedies, towards the establishment of more effective (and possibly uniform) anti-corruption measures.

Our previous collection Corruption in the Global Era (Routledge, 2019) analysed the causes, the sources and the forms of manifestation of global corruption. An ideal continuation of that volume, this book moves from the analysis of the phenomenon of corruption to that of the regulatory remedies against corruption and for the promotion of integrity.

Corruption, Integrity and the Law provides a unique interdisciplinary assessment of the global anti-corruption legal framework.  The collection gathers top experts in different fields of both the academic and the professional world – including criminal law, EU law, international law, competition law, corporate law, and ethics. It analyses legal instruments adopted not only at a supranational level but also by different countries, in the attempt of establishing an interdisciplinary and comparative dialogue between theory and practice and between different legal systems towards a better global promotion of integrity.

This book will be of value to researchers, academics, and students in the fields of law, criminology, sociology, economics, and ethics, as well as professionals – especially, solicitors, barristers, businessmen and public servants.
