Course Details

Corruption has been one of the most discussed and debated issues in international business for the past several years. While companies in Japan, the United States and the European Union are increasingly investing and doing business in developing countries, the reality is that in addition to new market opportunities, these companies are also exposing themselves to heightened corruption risk. At the same time, anti-corruption laws around the world are being enforced more comprehensively and aggressively than ever.

This seminar examines the phenomenon of corruption from real world as well as academic perspectives. It includes analysis and discussion of a variety of resources, including scholarly research, first-hand accounts from victims of corruption as well as the government officials and business people involved in it, investigative reporting, court documents, and legislative initiatives that aim to reduce or eliminate corruption.

During the seminar, we will discuss the definition of corruption from a variety of perspectives, causes of corruption, the effects of corruption globally and within individual societies, and government efforts to fight corruption including the adoption of international initiatives such as the UN International Convention Against Corruption and the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention and national legislation such as the USA's Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act, and France's anti-corruption, known as Sapin II.
