Summary

Corruption is a globalising phenomenon. Not only it is rapidly expanding globally, but, more significantly, its causes, its means and forms of perpetration and its effects are more and more rooted in the many developments of globalisation. The Panama Papers, the FIFA scandals, the Petrobras case in Brazil are just a few examples of the rapid and alarming globalisation of corrupt practices in recent years. The lack of empirical evidence on corrupt schemes and a still imperfect dialogue between different disciplinary areas and between academic and practitioners hinders our knowledge of corruption as a global phenomenon and slows down the adoption of appropriate policy responses. 

Corruption in the Global Era seeks to establish an interdisciplinary dialogue between theory and practice and between different disciplines and to provide a better understanding of the multifaceted aspects of corruption as a global phenomenon. This book gathers top experts across various fields of both the academic and the professional world – including criminology, economics, finance, journalism, law, legal ethics and philosophy of law – to analyse the causes and the forms of manifestation of corruption in the global context and in various sectors (sports, healthcare, finance, the press etc.) from the most disparate perspectives. The theoretical frameworks elaborated by academics are here complemented by precious insider accounts on corruption in different areas, such as banking and finance and the press. The expanding links between corrupt practices and other global crimes, such as money laundering, fraud and human trafficking are also explored. This book is an important resource to researchers, academics, and students in the fields of law, criminology, sociology, economics, and ethics, as well as professionals, particularly solicitors, barristers, businessmen and public servants.
