Prevention and control of corrupt practices formed the central theme of the 14th International Symposium on Economic Crime. This topical work contains a selection of key Conference papers.
Amid several arguably central issues-- the control of economic crime, the protection of developing economies or those in transition--the ever present threat of corruption remains predominant. Corruption and associated abuses attack from within the integrity and thus the efficiency and efficacy of institutions, both in the public and private sectors.
In addition to the inevitable external implication, the consequences also occur within government or the enterprise in question. For this reason, the control of corrupt practices, more than any other threat, requires an integrated strategy involving both outward and inward-looking preventive and response measures.
This work addresses all aspects of the problem of corruption on a multidisciplinary basis and covers a variety of jurisdictions. Its thought provoking nature and the originality and timeliness of the topics discussed make this a work of prime interest to law enforcement officers, lawyers, and bankers.
