With fresh corruption scandals emerging regularly in the news around the world, international legal approaches to corruption are of enduring importance. This Commentary aims to advance our knowledge of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, a global and comprehensive treaty, which establishes new rules in several areas of anti-corruption law and helps shape domestic laws and policies. Contributors to the Commentary include anti-corruption experts, scholars, and legal practitioners, worldwide. This book launch will celebrate the publication of this volume by fostering further discussion about legal and policy approaches to corruption, with perspectives from academia and practice.
