Corruption: Spurring China to Engage in International Law

Abstract:     
This article introduces China’s participation in international anti-corruption efforts by focusing on the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC). It argues that, in light of the congruence of UNCAC’s aims with the Chinese government’s domestic concerns, UNCAC presents an advantageous two-way street. Going one direction, China is poised to serve an active, constructive role in the Convention’s future. In the opposite direction, China’s engagement in UNCAC is stimulating domestic legal initiatives that have the potential to benefit its citizens.
