Resumo:The Business Principles for Countering Bribery provide a framework for companies to develop comprehensive anti-bribery programmes.

Autor/Editor: Transparency International

The OECD Working Group on Bribery also publishes data on enforcement by the Parties in its annual reports.

Resumo: “Nas últimas duas décadas, a corrupção tem permanecido com maior ou menor frequência no debate público e na agenda dos governos. Para alémda intensidade do fenómeno, da crescente sofisticação dos seus processos de troca e do alcance sistémico dos seus efeitos, a corrupção é também, cada vez mais, um fenómeno global que tem levado a uma maior atuação das organizações internacionais neste domínio. O que distingue a corrupção dos nossos dias de outros períodos históricos não é somente a sua maior cobertura e a maior atenção que suscita na opinião pública, mas o facto de o fenómeno e o seu combate não estarem circunscritos nem serem discutidos apenas numa ótica nacional.”
