New anti-corruption laws and intensified law enforcement - in particular, in Organization for Economic Co-operations and Development (OECD) Member States - are motivating companies to implement sound anti-corruption compliance programs. This will help reduce risk and may also serve as a business tool. Yet, companies are increasingly voicing the need for a harmonized approach to compliance. The OECD Guidance, enacted in 2010, may well serve as a template for such a standard, since it has been adopted by the Member States of the OECD by unanimity. This book gives an introduction to anti-corruption compliance and the OECD standards in particular. It will help managers and other corporate practitioners identify the needs for their company and know what to ask for.

This book presents the results of a two-year international research project conducted for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDOC) to investigate and provide solutions for reducing bribery and corruption in corporations and institutions. It starts with an empirical case study on the effectiveness of a set of self-regulation rules adopted by multinational companies in the energy sector. Second, it explores the context and factors leading to corruption internationally (and the relationships between domestic criminal law and self-regulation). Third, it examines guidelines for the adoption of compliance programs developed by international institutions, to serve as models for the future. The principle result of the book is a three-pronged Anti-Bribery Corruption Model (so called ABC Model), endorsed by the United Nations, intended as a corruption prevention tool intended to be adopted by private corporations. This work provides a common, research-based standard for anti-bribery compliance programs, with international applications. This work will be of interest to researchers studying Criminology and Criminal Justice, particularly in the areas of organized crime and corruption, as well as related areas like Business Ethics and Comparative International Law.

Corruption undermines nearly all key legal and developmental priorities today, including the effective functioning of democratic institutions and honest elections; environmental protection; human rights and human security; international development programs; and fair competition for globaltrade and investment. This book chronicles the global anticorruption steps taken since the movement advanced after the end of the Cold War. It provides a realistic assessment of the present state of affairs by critically evaluating what existing anticorruption programs and treaties have accomplishedand documenting their shortcomings, while developing an action agenda for the next decade. The authors argue that reformative action is imperative, and the forces of globalization and digital communication will level the playing field and erode the secrecy corruption requires. They define corruption, document its effects, discuss the initiatives that changed public perception, analyze thelessons learned, and then evaluate how to move forward with existing initiatives charting a new path with new, differentiated strategies.
