Abstract

This Article analyzes the conceptual and practical dynamics of bribery as it courses through public and private sectors and critiques the divergent legislative approaches to criminalizing both bribery forms. It advocates for the adoption of specific statutory reforms to combat private bribery more effectively as part of a larger anti-corruption regime and to limit the differences between criminal laws governing public and private bribery so that sanctions balance for both bribery forms.
