Abstract

The international response to corruption raises many important questions: How did corruption become a matter of concern for international law? Was it the result of globalization? Was it the result of a renewed sense of morality around the world? Is this part of a global outcry against the abuse of power? Are international efforts to combat corruption linked with the development of human rights? Is trade competition the primary motivating factor? When did corruption become part of the international agenda, and why? And where is it all going? While certainly provoked by these questions, this Article does not pretend to give definite answers. It seeks only to contribute to the understanding of the development of anti-corruption measures under international law by answering the following question: what is the status, direction, and development of the treatment of corruption under international law?

Keywords: corruption, international law, bribery, developments
