The United Nations Convention Against Corruption: A Commentary

Edited by Cecily Rose, Michael Kubiciel, Oliver Landwehr


The United Nations Convention against Corruption includes 71 articles, and takes a comprehensive approach to the problem of corruption, as it addresses prevention, criminalization, international cooperation, and asset recovery. Since it came into force more than a decade ago, the Convention has attracted nearly universal participation by states. It is a global and comprehensive convention, which establishes new rules in several areas of anti-corruption law and helps shape domestic laws and policies around the world. This volume provides systematic coverage of the treaty, with each chapter discussing the relevant travaux préparatoires, the text of the final article, comparisons with other anti-corruption treaties, and available information about domestic implementing legislation and enforcement.
